川柳 • shy
erotic senryu by Redbud
your dress — a drop of semen on the floor between
·········your ankles
  • “To some purists only the absence of season words and kireji divides senryu from haiku… Others note that senryu tend to focus on the humor in a situation, and do not always speak of the specific here and now, while haiku usually do. Human concerns, though not absent from haiku, dominate senryu.” The Haiku Handbook · William J. Higginson

      Thanks Paul. Are you developing a taste for Senryu/Erotic Haiku? I hope so.

    Hello. Newbie here. I stumbled on this blog, and i’m glad i did. I’ve dabbled in haiku, but senryu? It gives me something else to turn my eye upon.

      Hi Newbie. If classical definitions of haiku and senryu still have any meaning, then a lot of writers who think they’re writing haiku are really writing senryu.
