Trembling ~ Haiku Bones

Trembling Quartet
.. three haiku one senryū

facing fox yet still

mother quail covered her chicks
trembling all the while

hungry small kitten
bold hungry begging tourists
trembling all the while

viper coiled to spring
poor small frog very quiet
trembling all the while

girl on a scooter
hoping he will ride with her
trembling all the while

Ah my friend. I just love the Quartet
you have given us. I'm a bit rusty on senryu but I love how you used the last line of each to bind them into one. Just lovely.

these are all good. I really like the first one. I have seen a quail momma tremble at my appearance in the field.
