The Cut

Forget not the cut,
but the scar to remind thee.
We can heal in time.

    interesting choice of language, sounds almost biblical. good message at the end though I think scars by definition don't heal, the pain that caused the cut in the first place can though, that much I can see we agree on. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I have a senryu called 'Cutter' if you're interested. Has a similar feel.

    So much truth in your last line. Much said in just three lines with a wonderful message. Regarding your comment on 5-7-5 format for haiku--it is considered by many not necessary for English versions. In fact, from what I've read, many professional English haiku writers use much briefer versions for their poems. I enjoy both philosophies. Happy writing! Karen
