    a Japanese art form?

      Yes, related to the haiku and somewhat of a precursor. In the most general terms, the haiku is said to deal with nature and the senryu with world of man — the latter often in a humorous, satiric, ironic or playful way. Both poems follow the Japanese syllabic patter 5-7-5, but Japanese syllables are not the same as English syllables since they can include what we could consider punctuation. I don’t try to reproduce that pattern since English can’t do what the Japanese language does. Also, even among Japanese haiku poets, the 5-7-5 rule is far from inviolate.

    mmm…lovely. You paint beautiful pictures with a sparing hand. That’s power, my friend.
