Senryu (Sen-ree-yoo) is a three-lined unrhymed Japanese poetic form structurally similar to the Haiku, but dealing with human rather than physical nature, usually in an ironic or satirical vein.

Senryu 5-7-5

A thousand mistakes
is but life's education
along wisdom's way

Oops....if I had read 5-7-5 first I would had known what Senryu meant.
Anyway, I like these short poems.  Such wisdom to behold.

Thank you so much, Danny, Haleyja and Hoot!  

As always Danny thanks so much for your kind words and support.

Haleyja you too write excellent haikus and senryus, I have enjoyed yours.  You are very creative

Hoot If ever you write haikus or senryus, please share them with us, you are such an amazing poet, I am sure that they will be perfect coming from you.

Take care,
Melissa Honeybee
