Drenched - A Senryu


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




A 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 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 works as a medium to express human emotions haiku evolves in to a senryu.

  1. Love is the word for God - the existence. It encompasses all. Polarity merges into it. Opposite emerges from it. The concept is beautifully illustrated by this senryu. :)

    1. Exactly! ..and the opposites actually attract each other like, we bless people to be happy but the moment we discern a happy glow on someone's countenance we start wondering what happened! Strange, Nahi? Similarly the moment we feel love, dark shadows start their sly approach yet love blooms unconcerned.Glad it resonated well with you.😊

  5. What a beautiful click, Kokila. So many interpretations to those lines. Dark and light seamlessly merge and let each other thrive.

    1. Yes, Rachna. The best thing about poetry is that the symbols, the interpretations vary with readers. At times, it give newer dimensions to the writers perspective also. And, that click is from my balcony garden..happy that you liked, dear!
