Haiku/Senryu--By Barbara Tate--United States

Haiku/Senryu

honest truth
my son does his first
pinky swear
_______________

family reunion
lining up to ride the horse
four grandchildren
_______________

farmers market
five dollars a basket
grandma's tomatoes
_______________

anniversary
in each drop of rain
a rainbow
_______________

cheshire smile
grandpa's teeth
on the nightstand
_______________

Thoughts from Barbara--Haiku, Senryu, & Haibun are such a pleasure to write. I'd like to thank Francine Banwarth (ed: Frogpond), Paul Miller (ed: Modern Haiku), Bob Lucky (ed: Contemporary  Haibun Online, an'ya, Sonam Chhoki and Marianna Monaco of Cattails, Fay Aoyagi of The Heron’s Nest, and Mike Rehling for all the help and 'mini lessons'. I also want to thank Ayaz Daryl Nielsen of Bear Creek Haiku, and a special thanks to Karen O'Leary for my Whispers’ family and writing some good strong Tan Renga with me. I am truly blessed.
