Senryū Wisdom

 

 

 

People who stand in the shadows

Never get burned

But are they happy

 

People who think

That they walk on water

Usually drown

 

 

People's selfworth

Isn't decided by wealth

Nor wealth means selfworth

 

 

Love held to tightly breaks

But love not held close

Slips away

 

 

Happiness doesn't

Depend on love, but

Love brings happiness

 

Whispers show love, but

Also bring pain

If whispered in haste

 

 

Count your blessings

but do your blessings

Add up your worth

Author's Note

Nancy Lee Shrader
Senryū is a Japanese form of short poetry, similar to haiku. Must be said in one breath. I'm on oxygen so they could have been longer.
