My little brother, Matt, turns 35 today. I thought I would "honor" him with a senryu poem in honor of his birth!

You came after me
But you have caused more trouble
Still glad that you're here.
I have learned a lot about haiku by watching Laura Salas work through her NaPoMo challenge. She is writing a haiku each day this month. The thing with haiku or senryu is that it seems so easy; we have to really challenge ourselves to say a lot using only a little! (That might be true in life also!)
If you have a little brother, a big sister, a mother, father, friend or teacher, consider honoring them with a senryu today!
