Haiku + Senryu

Haiku is a seasonal, reverent celebration of a subject (nature or people) trying to make a feeling.
Senryu tends to have a victim and may be humorous or irreverant trying to make a point.
- paraphrased from Michael Dylan Welch's Graceguts

Excellent haiku =) There is a certain truth to the adage about your face sticking in the expression most worn

Looks a wise old man with a lot of wisdom!! The stone and the grains make it look very ancient, seems like he has an extra long life line!! Lovely choice for the prompt!!
