OK, so call me a bit slow, but I'm just now gaining interest in "types" of poetry.
My question? Is there a difference between Haiku's and Senryu's?

Hi there, Irie~
I am also fascinated in the Japanese poetry forms of Haiku and Senryu.

The way I understand it is that Haiku
describes a specific topic or event in nature
and Senryu covers other topics.

Examples -

*Haiku - 5-7-5 syllabic count format

Wind rocks bough of oak
Nestled nest of squirrels sway
Frisky critters sleep



*Senryu - 5-7-5 syllabic count format

Fire of heart's desire
Burns down deep within my soul
Not a false alarm


Hope this helps.
They are intriguing little pieces of word magic
that are fun to do and easy to get hooked on.

E-mail me if you'd like some links to go to
and I will look them up and send them tomorrow.
I know that Nan could help you also.

I can't explain any better than Marge has...
Two of my old favorites...

Haiku

Vilification
Acid precipitation
Reforestation.

Senryu

Serendipity
A chance we take or lose for
All eternity

Thank you both so much for taking the tie to respond.
It all makes sense to me now!  
And I enjoyed reading your examples.
