Senryu Gathering Fragments


Disturbing the calm
strong winds sweep across the plains
gathering fragments.

    a beautiful picture painted, this is the fallen leaves of lives, broken parts of relation, remain here and there, scattered, emotions play a great role in life, emotions are like storms...a fantastic poem with with indirect treatment of the theme...in using extraordinary metaphors.. love it.... ten marks...
