i agree with Christine .. your senryu warms the heart to read ... being kind and taking a gentle posture is truly its own best reward ... something me puppies have taught me is that the more i give ... the more i have to give ... or so it seems ;) so glad i caought this one this morning ..thoughts and impressions to take with me today ... be kind and gentle :)

You're very welcome.
You make me smile. This is how it must be. Sadly, not all are capable of empathy.

I feel wonderful for making you smile dear Samuel. Thank you for the review.
I find your page reassuring, Mrudula. There is always knowledge and wisdom on offer here. The quiet kind that invites rather than demands.

I love that your title on down epitomizes that sense, for me. Every word chosen with care and offering that sense of both space and positive definition.

I’ve experimented very little with short Japanese forms, but your shares here always inspire to try and explore them more.

Always enjoy my visits here.

Having been on the receiving end of much kindness during my recent years of physical struggle, I can attest that this is "dinkum" (another word I've never seen & thanks for always turning me on to new words!) I can't think of a single word that could be changed to pump up the meaning of your statement. I find it rare that haiku/senryu packs a punch this big & I like that yours does. Hope your Easter was fun & full of love (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Too few have this sort of nature I'm afraid, Can you imagine how different this world would be with people like this in it? A beautiful senryu Mrudula.

This is definitely me. Helped an old woman across the road yesterday.
Granted, she didn't want to cross the road, but I did explain life was better on the other side.
Wonder when I'm getting my Knighthood.
How you doing, Mrudula.

You are the best.
Great wisdom shared. The people who don't seek to be recognized and give to the needy. Honored people in our world. Your words honest and true my friend.
