no more “secrets” left
Prune Juice, vol. 6, July 2011
I wrote this senryu-style haiku some time ago, but I only submitted it a short while back to Prune Juice: Journal of Senryu & Kyoka. Now, I’m happy to report, it’s surrounded by many fine senryu poems in Liam Wilkinson and Bruce Boynton’s wonderful online journal. You can read the journal by following the link above, or, once you’re there, download it so you can reread it (and previous issues) at your leisure.
So, what’s a senryu, you ask? And my answer, without getting too long-winded, is that it’s a form of haiku that centers more around human nature than Mother Nature–in a distinctly playful way. But don’t take my word for it; just go, visit the summer (downloadable) edition of Prune Juice and enjoy the spirit of senryu for yourself.
