Hello there everyone.
I’m a couple of days late responding but I’ve been at it again and had a go at joining in the fun over at Colleen Chesebro’s website for her “Colleen’s 2020 Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge”.
This week, we are using a Photo Prompt for the challenge.
I am writing a trio of Senryus with a 5/7/5, 3/5/3 & 2/3/2 syllable structure based on the photo below.
Senryus are like haikus but while haikus deal with nature, senryus are more ironic and deal with human nature.

A Trio of Senryus by David Ellis
Shapes found in the clouds
Remind me of my own brains
Fuzzy in morning
Paint so many words
I can’t draw
In my thoughts
