Senryu: String

umbilical cord
birth or death, start or end but
string where fates entwined 




Author's Note:   This post is my first share for the 1st anniversary of Haiku-Heights.   This is a senryu (5-7-5 syllables) based on last week's prompt  - String.   For those new to these forms:  Haiku and Senryu are both Japanese poetry forms that have three lines. The three lines, if reflecting nature, form a haiku; and if reflecting emotions and life in general, forms a Senryu.


also shared with Haiku, My heart.   Nice to meet you~
