I love haiku/senryu. Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking one, Liz. From Wikipedia regarding the difference between "haiku" and "senryu": "...they both have a similar construction. A haiku is usually about nature and has more of a serious tone while a senryu is more often about human activities or doings and often has a more joking tone." Thank you for sharing. Love and best wishes,

Your message is exquisite, poignantly simple and yet profound!

Some are blind to such beauty, as your poem says.
Indeed, Haiku, but who cares, it's the feel and emotional impact that matter. TY

I believe it's a senryu, Elizabeth (5/7/5) -- and it's lovely. Well done and a pleasure to read.
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 6/7/2011
This is a combination of the two, Elizabeth. Haiku's are 100% about nature, senryu's are about anything else. The first and last line are senryu's, the middle one, haiku. Matters not they are all, taken together, beautiful.

I am not made of stone but I am a strong person and this is beautiful Elizabeth.

Newfie Hugs, Rose
