Technically I think this is a Senryu, Haiku's are about nature. Nonetheless, it packs a punch.

I see that this was your first haiku, MC, written 3 years ago! Not bad for a rookie:) I'm looking forward to reading your present day haiku! Regards // paul

glad to see one of the troopers on the soup. sorry i haven't shared the respect i should have before. sometimes Afganistan doesn't ring out as loud as it does other days. you got the sylables right. but to be an expert it's more than sylables. it's the burst of thought in the readers mind.

Marquis, very expressive and emotive work..I believe it was written from a heart that has much emotion..Thanks for the visits to my page.."Embrace" was written during my alone time with nature and God out on the porch in the early morn..I am glad that you enjoyed reading it..Sara
