A glass half empty

Volume 1 Issue 10 of Failed Haiku is out today, with over a hundred pages of ‘senryu and senryuish poetry’. I’m still reading my way through it, out of order, and so far one of my favourites is the very last one, a monoku by Mike Rehling (the editor):

if there were dragons what song would they sing

I’m delighted to have four senryuish poems included. Here are the six that didn’t make the cut:

with tears we wash blood
blue seas

a glass half empty
of tears

crystallisation
words precipitate
tabula rasa

I capture time
in hands open to the sky
whispering ripples
beauty in a moment
falls away

key change
a crescendo for the wife
swap

literacy
red ink spills
across the pond

    I especially loved this one:

    “I capture time
    in hands open to the sky
    whispering ripples
    beauty in a moment
    falls away”

    Great work!
