Cerulean sky and other Senryu…


Published in Prune Juice, A Journal of Senryu, Kyoka,

 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)
