Sensory Senryu

Posted on

 

 

Claustrophobia

 

a jet black bubble

titanium choke hold

last taste of insanity

 

 

Peace

 

auras of eucalyptus

good deeds dangle from the stars

waiting on supernova

 

 

Fake

 

pearly white snake

words whispering agenda

bouncing off the wise

 

 

Micromanaged

 

preyed, poked and pried

shadowed under King Kong thumb

random rays of light

 

 

It’s time for Poetics at dVerse.  Today I am hosting and the topic is “Sensory Play”. Choose something abstract such as a colour, emotion, idea, concept, a quality, trait or situation…and bring it to life using one or more senses. You could also choose something more concrete, as long as you are using senses that are not normally associated with it. For example, describing the sound of “moonlight”. Hope you can join us!

  3. I love the whole collection, Mish, but I can really identify with Claustrophobia and Micromanaged!

  5. I agree with Kathy. You got under the skin of each word in a vivid phrase.

  7. I liked how peace was waiting for the supernova which would not be a very peaceful event. Also being shadowed by King Kong’s thumb seems appropriate for micromanaged.

    I’m pleased that you like to write senryu–when a haiku is called for, I generally prefer them, placing one at the end of most of my poems these days–creating my individual version of haibun, creating gentle parameters of the raw free verse I love. This poetic quartet is clever. I like FAKE, followed by PEACE..followed by fake peace; sweet.

  14. Micromanaged got me! I know that feeling so well. They all work together so well, too.
