Blessings Thanked

Thankful for blessings
From everywhere, sometimes missed,
But treasured by all

Senryu, also called human haiku, is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables or 17 syllables in all.  Senryu is usually in the present test and only references some aspect of human nature or emotions.  They possess no references to the natural world, standing out from nature/seasonal haiku.
