'Brilliant words flowing From those never knowing, how many lives they touch.' - Connie Marcum Wong
Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5 ) or 17 syllables in all.
Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.
You know what?! Y'all are some pretty amazing writers out there! It might be a character flaw of mine that prevents me from staying away from here long enough to rest my eyes, but I highly suspect that it also has something to do with the tremendous amount of talent floating around here! Who'd want to miss out on that, na?! My rebellious eyes do require some rest though, so I'll only be partially present over the next few days, and then I plan to host an assorted alliteration challenge over on my other account. In the meantime, feel free to check out my repost tab on any given day, so as to experience the words of some fantastic writers amongst us. I try to keep a little of everything in there.

All I ask is that in one way or another, you'll consider lending a helping hand to your fellow Mirakeeans. As writers, we go unrecognized and unacknowledged without the support of our readers; and no matter how well a writer is doing, any success we might have is surely owed in part to our dedicated readers. Besides, without the support and acknowledgement of genuine readers, there's not much point to all this, is there? So let's do our best to return the considerable support and kindness we've been shown by paying it forward to others. Ask not what Mirakee can do for you (especially considering they've already done a heck of a lot for us, all free of charge), but what you can do for your fellow Mirakeeans... because any way you look at it, we all rise together. Blessings, Carolyn
