Cerulean sky and other Senryu…

 

Published in Prune Juice, A Journal of Senryu, Kyoka, 
Haibun and Haiga, Issue 23, November 2017

 In addition to three haiga published in Prune Juice, there were also these senryu:

 

walking meditation
       worries follow
             in shadow   

 

cerulean sky –
the wild sea air
tousles my thoughts

 

barren –
even the word
is devoid of hope

 

promises not kept—
that umbrella you gave me 
blows inside out

This stormy, but fun, vintage illustration is from a 1911 book illustrated by Oliver Herford (1863-1935)

Note on the photo: I took this picture on a beautiful, sunny winter day in Greenwich Park, Greenwich, London. Greenwich Park is one of the beautiful Royal Parks that make city living a joy. The frost on the leaves and grass and the bright sunlight were just exquisite that morning.

Battered boards … (haiga)

Note on the photo: In 2013 I visited Avignon, France, which is where this picture was taken of the outside of the Palais des Papes. It dates back to the 14th century.

Three of my senryu were published in the newest issue of Prune Juice. It is always an honor to be included in this excellent publication and among such fine poets. My thanks to editor and poet, Steve Hodge for including my work.
