Colleen’s 2020 Weekly #Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 165 #PhotoPrompt #Senryu #MicroPoetry #Poetry – “A Trio of Senryus” by David Ellis

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

 

Our pictures

Paint so many words

I can’t draw

 

Dragons

In my thoughts

Fired up

If you too want to participate in the challenge yourself then you can find the link to the current one here:-
