  6. I love the sweet expression the sculptor was able to achieve.
    Your haiku made me smile – so true of the youngest. 🙂

  7. He looks alive, his musings about his place in the family lineage are astute – and on the money! The expression is endearing indeed!

  8. Favourites and only children are easily identified…

  9. As a teacher, I know children like this. Love the ambiguity of that last line.

    By the way, I took you up on your challenge. I have six senryu for you today. Hope you like them.
