Love -a senryu

                                                     Love bloomed pink
                                                      world faded away
                                                      I found you






Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry capturing moods of nature and seasons in all their vivid hues by presenting a juxtaposition of elements.
It is like a white frothy waterfall gushing in full glory glimpsed through a crevice. It seizes the scene in its brevity of 5-7-5 or 3-5-3 syllables and then, simply guides the reader towards the view from that crack.

What the reader takes in from there depends upon perception and receptiveness.


When nature reflects human emotions like in the above composition,the haiku evolves into a Senryu.

                                                 On a long green stalk
                                                 sunshine poses  daintily
                                                 anticipating

Drenched - A Senryu


                                  White flower tinged with pink
                                  Darkness lurks sly in shadows
                                  I am drenched in love
