  1. Excellent! your count is right on.
    This is actually senryu because the human element is present
    Haiku is or should always have a season mentioned or some how
    represent nature, and they don’t traditionally have titles,
    making them very hard to keep file and find in folders lol I give
    mine descriptions just so I can find them šŸ˜‰ Here are a few of links
    that have info I think you will like. Nothing like reading books
    on a specific form, just to write Poems with three short lines lol.
    Keep up the good work sweet poetess šŸ™‚

  2. Not sure I get it. Looked it up, but still not sure of it’s meaning. I love the fact that it is unfinished, but dislike it for the same reason. It certainly makes the mind wander, but I guess I just like a more definitive answer at the end. Maybe satisfaction at the end, good or bad, it’s still satisfaction. I guess I just more appreciate a story-like-poem. A beginning, a middle, and an end. Just me. I have SO much to learn about poetry. I love your work. šŸ™‚
