More Haiku? Senryu?

This poet is now sharing a few of my poems that have been published previously in online and print journals. As indicated in a previous post, some are haiku; some are senryu, but I don’t distinguish between the two forms.

Here from Stanford M. Forrester’s magazine, “bottle rockets”, issue #34, February 2016 are two haiku/senryu.

empty nesters
still picking up toys,
now the cat’s

summer Olympics
garbage men toss
empty cans

(which is apropos since the 2016 Rio games in Brazil are nearly upon us).

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Fun piece that first one – After the summer I’ll be picking up less grandee toys…
    as both will be in school (though one in the nursery class).

    I think I fell out of favor with the Olympics in general when they started letting professionals play…
    But then there was always the differences between who could practice and who couldn’t…or who was forced to and taken away from their homes as children. So much given up for a brief time of competition, where so many are not on equal ‘footing’ so to speak.

  2. I pick up grandchildren’s toy when they are here…it goes with the territory, I guess.

    I know what you mean about pros in Olympics. They were always supposed to be for amateurs. I do watch some of them, but never the “dream teams” made up of pros. Now, if normal people could have their own events… nan
