MODERN SENRYU with TITLE is a Japanese poem with a title that deepens its meaning. Senryu is similar to Haiku but It's about human nature and it doesn't include a season word (kigo). It's written in one to four lines with no strict syllable count, but brief. These poems use a pause usually marked by a dash before the satori (an insightful twist to ponder). Alliteration and metaphor are okay. Never rhymes. the em-dash ( -- ) is used to emphasize an interruption in speech before the satori. for more information click here collection of senryu ***** The Haiku Foundation of America

Thank you very much for taking the time to read and review my poem.
