Senryu and Haiku

Senryu
this delicate skin
housing organ blood bone soul
a wilderness tent
Haiku
the snow falls in piles
floating on the frozen ground
like little white ghosts

Tuesday night means dVerse OpenLinkNight. It’s actually Wed. morning, but there’s still some time to write a poem, send it in, and join in the friendship of fellow poets.

  2. Thanks Sky–the winter poem went through a lot of editing, little tweeks here and there. I should have done what you did with yours, post all of the variations and let the readers decide!

  4. Thanks Linda–I've not written much poetry in these forms, but I'm really learning to love them. In many ways, they are perfectly suited to my approach to poetry and life.
