Ok, since I am moderating in dark



How many can write a dark senryu?


Any takers?  C'mon . . .



________________________________________
Format:

A senryu is a three line Japanese poem structurally similar to haiku. It is unrhymed and the subject is based human nature.

line 1 - 5 syllables
line 2 - 7 syllables
line 3 - 5 syllables

If willing, please post in Dark as senryu challenge or something like that.

Correction: Haiku entails imagery based on nature or has a nature theme.  Senryu has the same format, but no nature theme.

Thanks Ali - always wondered about that - got that from a website, was unsure myself.  I figured it meant human nature, as in self.

Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Loud gnashing of teeth
Assailed my quivering ears.

Not sure how "Dark" you are allowed go here
But perhaps this is getting close

Exsanguination
Liver sauteed garlic sauce
Psychotic dreaming

Trusting his cold heart
Loneliness that floods all tears
Darkness overflows
