This week it’s a beautiful photo prompt from Ritu @

My poem’s a sad one today as I recently heard about the tragic death of a young woman in her early twenties. How fragile we are.


I miss you; I’m blue
Above me heaven’s sky opens
My light shines for you
Waiting for you to return
Dinner’s ready love, come home.


Colleen is looking for Senryu poetry in the 3/5/3 and 2/3/2 format to use in her new book as an example. If she uses your poem you will retain all rights to your work. Your work is copyrighted and she will cite you in the Bibliography at the end of the book. Please email Colleen at 

 I miss you

I’m so blue dearest

Light the way


My love

You left me

So sad


Each day is so precious. Much Love. xxx
