Three Senryus for you and me














Without you can’t live a day
My heart craves for your company; but
I need some time alone

What makes us go on?
When you and I are so different
Perhaps we need each other!

We need to talk more
Because we need to understand each other
Much better than we ever did


(Senryu is a Japanese poetry with 5+7+5 format...
the difference between Haiku and Senryu is that
Haiku is for natural themes while Senryu for human...
though somewhere they both merge)

Lovely - I wasn't aware of Senryu, but then again, there's so little I know about the Japanese culture.

Great Images there but I think you got it wrong! Both Haikus and Senryus follow the 5-7-5 syllable patterns not words!

There has to be irony at the end!

Hope you don't mind my saying so!
