Please note that the SENRYU e-mail address has been changed from PoetryA@peoplepc.com
The SENRYU section invites your submissions. In addition to diversified topics, three senryu topics in progress for the Autumn '08 issue are "Death", "Horror" and "Parodies". Examples:
she straightens his tie
my son follows me into the kitchen
The servant who oversleeps
Puts on the firewood
The lover who oversleeps
Puts on his clothes
Note: for more examples see the Parodies topic in the SENRYU section of Simply Haiku Autumn 2005, vol.3 no.3 issue. The editor will seek to acquire permission grants for the original poems that are parodied.
