Haiku X 2

Teardrops burst their banks

Brimming over as a flood

Of liquid emotion.

Stu,
Thanks for the link to humankindjournal.
I scanned it quickly, then went back and read it again.
The question is whether or not I have enough material that would meet their criteria, but it certainly has given me something to mull over.
I'll keep you in the loop if anything develops.

Regards,
Dave

Thank you Stu.
I went through a phase of what I call orientalism, and dashed out dozens of Haiku and a few Senryu, before getting bored. It was then I decided to spice them up by adding a dash of humour.
