Do not just assume.

    Well, this is not a Haiku, Aden, but it is a Senryu. According to Japanese standards, a Haiku poem can only be about Nature and make no mention of anything else in it. A Senryu poem, using the same 5-7-5 format as the Haiku, can be about anything else. I don't know what they are teaching in school these these, but to call this a haiku is an insult to all Haiku purists. Get yourself a book on the subject and you will learn that what I said is quite true. Sadly, most Americans seem to think anything in a 5-7-5 syllable format is a Haiku, but that is not so. Your poem is a fine Senryu and is well expressed. Carl.

    Its majestically said that -
    Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won't come in.”

    Good thought.
