Shadow of Senryu Suite 5

Concept of sameness
within family nuance...
blood line prevalent.

When The link is blood
the brain a mind of its own...
tolerance prescribed.

Honour each other
respect is earned not a gift...
like an open mind.

    What a "Shadow" my firiend...and how beautiful..but then truuth and honor are always weapons of love, aren't they..?!! The power in your words, echo back to me my own feelings.

    Nice senryu here. "Senry? tend to be about human foibles and observations of everyday situations - including philosophical statements....." That is what I have now established. Thank you for confirming this on my senryu, Door. I did initially teeter on the brink between haiku and senryu... Wishing you a lovely weekend, Harry. Love, Su

    Absolutely fantastic Senryu - A winner in the contest. Thanks Harry for your enlightened comments on my poem the Journey of Love. The fact is that you have revealed the soul of the poem. In writing Quatrains I am inspired by the Urdu Language poet Josh Malihabadi whose 700 Rubai'yat contained in two books I have translated into English Quatrain. One of my books was published in USA and the second one's manuscript is being edited and will go to the press shortly. Regards

    Catie has a very nice way of reflecting on her thoughts and you have emulated that. I sure wish I had the time to rework one of her poems. This is one contest difficult for me to get to. Good luck in her contest, Harry, and soupmail.
