    Although your syllable count of 5-7-5 is correct, Lorraine, this is technically not a haiku but a senryu poem. A haiku is only about nature, nothing else. A senryu is about anything else except nature. Both are always written in the 5-7-5 syllable style. Still, I enjoyed this well written and expressed senryu poem very much. Carl. (Report) Reply

    Lorraine I enjoyed the provocation of thought in this haiku...eternal vs. the moment.....and which has more meaning in the end......thanks for sharing your talent and insight (Report) Reply

    I really love this poem! Like most good Japanese literature, it leaves so much to the reader and is very philosophical. Well done!

    Contains so many aspects of a good haiku. I am still trying to master it. So I read others hoping to translate the secret. I am sure I will find your haiku insipiring. (Report) Reply

We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
