Senryu for mummy

Wrinkled hands shiver, touch me
 we’re back to playing the old game,
I’ll be mummy and you, me.



This poem is for Francine's Mothers day contest.

    this one is heartbreaking. Sounds like my stepdad when he got alzheimers. Or it can be just an elderly person who now needs her child's care. I really like it!

    it's very emotional and lovely write. but I suggest please pay attention to the syllable count in Senryu. First line 5, second line 7 and third line 5 syllables. Afroze
