Connections - Senryu Collection

Updated on June 27, 2018
Senoritaa profile image

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.


A Senryu is of the same format as a Haiku (5-7-5), however, it deals with human emotions, as opposed to a Haiku, which deals with nature.

This collection represents two different emotions for each relationship (e.g., a parent, a sibling, etc.), wherein one relationship has gone right, and the other wrong.

Connections | Source

Holding your Hand

Relationship with an easygoing parent

Standing at the gate

The tunnel of love and life

I hold on to you

Running Behind You

Relationship with a difficult parent

You are way ahead

Rocky terrain, beyond mirth

Grasping for a wave

Better than Never

An uncomfortable sibling relationship

Neat dolls ragged hearts

Alike dreams, on paths apart

Twin frocks breathe no more

Beaded by Strings

Tight sibling bonds

Two smiles tomorrow

Tears yesterday, fall and rise

Together us, binds

Up and Down

A true friend forever

Storming out to fight

Chide, embrace, never beguile

Family sans blood

Over and Out

Friendships that do not last

Jolly and sunny

Ruptured days, mockery tales

Buds that never bloomed

Fatal Love

The heartbreaking romance

Drew my solace out

Left me with endless despair

Maimed existing rights

The Sunflower

Finding true love at last

Dazzling daisies dance

Garden of love, flourishes

Like minds intertwine

One with God

There are no two sides to it

Blemishes of soul

Perishing with agony

Blending into You

        Thank you, Hari. The only key relationship I left out was the relationship with children, partly because from what I have observed, even difficult relationships with children are considered bliss by parents, unless they get too extreme. Thank you again for visiting.

        Haiku is an excellent form for you.

        I liked Running behind you the best. (Trying to swim in rocky terrain) Nice Imagery!

        Yes ... much better!

        Your poetry is exquisite and yet you remain virtuous. That is the real victory. An awesome trait!

        Frank, its been a while. Thank you for your appreciation. I suppose you have been busy with the book Peg wrote about. So, do I get the autographed copy?

        Manatita, thank you for your suggestion, changed the format of the titles. I think this should be better. Thank you again for all your good insights.

        Ah, Rinita. So I have some small influence! Cool!

        One girl asked the meaning of Haiku's in London about a year ago. It was at Poetry Cafe and we do get some learned folks.

        They told her the usual, but she wanted more. I wanted to tell her what I told you about the wow effect, the Light in Haiku's and so forth, but I didn't. Believe it or not the next poet was doing Haiku's. He got to about the fourth Haiku and the crowd went 'Wow!" A good Haiku is like that.

        Good Haiku's use the seasons or weather conditions as well as animals and forms. Note my use of 'beautiful sunrise.'

        You Senryu's are immaculate ... sublime!

        Oh, I forgot. Do not explain them. I understand your long titles but just keep it short. Om Shanti!

        I so appreciate your heartfelt comment, manatita. Thank you so much for that additional Haiku. There's something I didn't know about Haiku (awaiting your prose).

        My last Senryu was actually inspired by your writings, so I am really glad you liked it.

        As to writing a book, finding a poetry publisher is tough, unless self-publishing. Maybe someday, though. Audrey is truly gifted, and there's a lot I learned from her. Haven't seen her around for a while, though.

        Thank you again for your thoughtful visit.

        Beautiful ending! I love them all but three or four stand out including the second Senryu. Brutal! Lol.

        Have you considered writing a book of poetry? You should do very well. You are an immaculate writer of the every day topical style, like Audrey Howitt.

        I have so much to do! I keep wanting to write a prose piece on Haiku's but so far, I have not done it. The early Haiku's were not just about nature, you know. They had that 'wow' effect, deliberately written, like the ancient Sutras, to enlighten, inspire, evoke deeper thoughts... reach the Heart.

        My Love to you Rinita and thank you for your continuous kind and loving words.

        " Beautiful sunrise

        Darkness enters its lustre

        The Light slowly fades. (Haiku) -Manatita. A take of your 'Over and Out.'
