Love & Harmony were the prompt words this week.
For love I went for lust and passion! For harmony I chose balance and peacefully.
Remember: Senryu poems make the human, not the world around them, the subject of their creative endeavor. Humor and sarcasm are two of the most favorable elements in a Senryu and should deal with the human condition. Think about sexual matters, family relations, religion, politics, and anything that touches on the pain we experience through sorrow, prejudice, oppression, anger, and frustration. Senryu do not deal in sentimentality.
I haven’t written any Senryu before so here goes… I’ve written three…
Downed in one
His lust overwhelmed
He was so fit
Did the splits
Balanced on one leg
Our mismatched passion
Made me quiet
Well, that was a strange one! The Senryu encouraged me to play with words to come up with some unusual results!
