    Augustas, these 2 are really powerful and say much in 2 short stanzas/forms.
    I have been in this situation where I tried contacting my best friend for days and it turned out he had been murdered and left for dead in a rubbish bin :( so brought back some memories but a really good write.

      Oh, Em.. I'm sorry for that. Thanks for the comment. And I want to tell you that in this case the small girl accidentally fell into the water tank. I feel very sad for that girl too.

      You are very knowledgeable, Ya.. It happened in Japan. It's very horrific. The small girl accidentally fell into the water tank.

    There was something similar that happened here in Canada, a girl was found in the water tank, and the case is still going on, there was video footage of her in the elevator going up to the roof I believe, and it was odd. It's terrible that a life was lost.

      Thanks for the comment. Ya! it's very dreadful. When this happens, people only think that the child must have been kidnapped or lost.

    Augustus,

    This really is a wonderfully dark senryu double - very clever. And the fact that these things have happened makes it that much harder to read.

    Well done on this,

    Ben

    Hello,

    a topical poem. These short forms are powerful, especially when there is a 'turn' in the last section. This delivers an emotional blow to the reader and allows them pause for thought.

    Well done, this form is not as easy as they look.

    Take care,

    Michael
