Haiku? Senryu? Either either.

Another of these. I’d just pass it by to be honest.

Naturist moved in

insistent on dancing nude

  1. oh dear. senryu, definitely senryu — haiku is all about being serious. senryu does comedy a lot and back in the day (edo period) there were senryu sex poems or poems talking about sexuality; senryu always talked about humanity although I doubt they did one on naturists. I doubt they would have cared back then if a person was nude or not seeing as how most everyone took baths at public bathhouses.

  2. this diminuitive poetry is complex stuff indeed. I felt better about defiling the haiku once I realised I wasn’t. Screw you Senryu kinda works but not as well as screw you haiku 🙂

  3. laughing, you are right. maybe back in the day, they said screw you haiku, and it got all mushed together to become senryu. like sukoshi which means a little in Japanese became skosh in the states when the GIs brought the word back with them after WWII

  4. I think I might have been serious about haiku for maybe the first post then gave it up and it was only about 200 nasty efforts later that I learned about Senryu…every day is a school day I guess!
