I am trying something new–senryu. I have experimented with haiku, haibun and renku. Now having fun with senryu.*

*Senryu: a 3-line unrhymed Japanese poem similar to haiku but treating human nature usually in an ironic or satirical vein. Merriam Dictionary

These 3 senryu were published this month in Failed Haiku edited by Michael Rehling online. Here are 3 failed haiku senryu. (what a name?!?)

Sensei says
haiku is always about love
I hate him

I love writing--It's my joy, my therapy--my confession. I'm a performer, dancer, yoga and meditation instructor, write a poetry column for Rafu Shimpo. Growth and love of life is a key to my happiness.

  1. To the Mouse:
    Yes, Failed Haiku is an online publication. The name is not my favorite. I think Prune Juice is another Senryu line publication. I’m going to look into it today. Lurline Ikeda took the photo of me and I took the picture of the clouds.
    Thank you for your comments.
    I think you would be good in Senryu.
