A senryu is a special kind of haiku. Instead of dealing with nature and natural subjects, the senryu deals with human conditions and human subjects. It still is written in the traditional 5-7-5 syllable, three line verse, or 17 syllables all together. Like haiku, the senryu is written in present tense.
I had fun with word play in writing this poem.
Can you try writing a senryu today? I give you permission to people watch in order to write your poem, just try to be polite and discrete.
How can one be sad on a sunny day? I'm grateful for sunshine.
