Smiles and Frowns

                                                     a baby's laughter
                                               joyful and spontaneous 
                                                 always brings a smile


                                                  the state of our world 
                                             so much hatred, so much war
                                                brings tears and a frown

    No need for cut markers in a senryu hon [--] you don't even need to make a shift in the subject only in haiku ;) Light & Love

    Looks like a good entry for Michael's contest. Both senryu entries appear formidable.
