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

Liberation


Recently I read Refugee Boy by Benjamin Zephaniah.
My poetic review and Goodreads review are on my Songlines on the Winds blog.


I am African
I need to find my soul light
free of border lines

I read "Cry the Beloved Country" years ago, and this reminded me of my similar thoughts at the time....
