Senryu 11


A child so precious 
wondering how beautiful 
is this world she lives?
Fortunate to leap
into imagination 
simply to escape
Her mind filled with hope
the horrors of non fiction
nowhere to be seen.

            Childlike innocence is brilliant, only spoiled by the growing years.
            That's why books are so important for kids, before we introduce them to Hannibal Lecter.

            • Teddy.15

              lol well put dear Paul, I was thinking about the everyday news I see and read every day , just took myself on an innocent journey for a moment. πŸ’–

                      • Rocky Lagou

                        I adore the way you gathered 3 seperate senryus to create one cohesive whole. That "non-fiction" part hits deep, as when we're younger or simply oblivious we tend to be so full of fantasy and unaware of the reality; the reality that not everything is perfect. A wonderful display!

                        • Teddy.15

                          Thank you much dear Rocky, I'm actually a bit lost of course hat a young mind is thinking at this moment I was young in a different time, but I do hope you all can escape for some tranquility and magic. πŸ’–

                          And each child is deserving of the wonder of fiction.... the child in me runs in the wildwood of your chosen picture and I am so willing to let go and enjoy that freedom once again.

                          What a beautiful thought lies within your writing today. It's one i shall want to disturb my sobriety time and again Teddy so i know it's going to be a welcome read among my favourites. Thank you.

                          • Teddy.15

                            Thank you dearest Dusk forever humbled when you enjoy my work so much. And thank you for your chain of thought, which is always most welcome. πŸ’–
