The Recently Learned Difference Between Haiku and Senryu

Posted on

Senryu: According to Merriam-Webster, “a 3-line unrhymed Japanese poem structurally similar to haiku but treating human nature usually in an ironic or satiric vein.”

Haiku

Goodbye to brown hills,
trees who scrubbed the spring blue sky
bristled like hedgehogs.

**********************************

Senryu

There are things I’ll miss:
Burping contests at dinner
isn’t one of them.

Just Like Trees

Posted on

Rain fell for days, stopped.
This is goodbye,
bare trees like matchsticks
waiting for a flame.

Soon, you’ll burst into
new green, fuzzed like the babies
in your nested branches.
Together may you open, bloom,
take to the air.
