Weekly Haiku – Senryu Prompt Challenge – 12 – Enjoying & Water
Using the words “enjoying & water” or just one or the other, write a Haiku or Senryu poem.
Haiku (also called nature or seasonal haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all.
There is much more to haiku than the made-up 5/7/5 version.
Here is an in-depth description of Haiku – Senryu (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.
You can write your haiku or senryu poem any way you like not necessary the 5/7/5 version.
