What are Senyru?
According to http://www.ehow.com/how_4495033_write-senyru.html
Senyru are like haiku, except they reveal an aspect of human nature juxtaposed with an image of nature. In contrast, haiku are short Japanese poems that invite us into a shared experience of nature. Both haiku and senryu are expressions of what is called the “haiku moment.” They are a moment of clarity that is similar to the meaning of “awe” in English. They are simple poems that can be said in one breath. In the Japanese tradition, seasonal words are associated with haiku. The use of seasonal words may or may not be used in the senyru genre of poetry.
Jingle’s first try on Senyru:
Flying up high
In boundless sky, we fall and
sing, thus comes spring.
One (1) Senyru written by The Height of Awesomeness at : http://fivefeetfiveinches.wordpress.com/
Shivering in winter,
On cold ice, barefoot I met her,
A look! thus began summer.
Four (4) Senyru by Poems to the Ocean at: http://poemstotheocean.wordpress.com/
With your tongue between my lips
I want to touch you ,
softly, only with my tongue ,
Soft, smooth, fragrant, melodic
#4: Can you play tonight?
Lips slide, kisses glide ,
into unspoken moonlight..
Can you play tonight?
