Contest Winner


Senryu is a Japanese short poetic form similar to haiku but focuses on human nature and it doesn't require a season word (kigo). It's written in 17 syllables OR LESS, usually in three lines. It can be satirical or humorous; on the other side, it can be serious expressing misfortunes, hardships, and woe of humanity. It goes back to late 18th century Japan.
