Lord accept this man---
whose only joy in this life
was embracing death.

    Deep and powerful senryu, Harry. Sadly, there are many people who "embrace death" because their lives were so hard. Excellent senryu, dear friend. Love, Carolyn

    Awesome, as profound a statement Harry, as I've seen in a Senryu. Good job. Agape, Moses
