Confessions {Senryu}

The form of poetry here is the Senryu. A senryu is a three line verse, originating in Japan, that deals with emotions rather than nature. It is similar to the haiku, and has a 5 – 7 – 5 syllabic format.


Too much to confess
I shall be broken; yet will
Honesty free me

Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
