Wow Gulnaz, those are great words, especially coming from you. You have a great talent to do the compact, complete, and gorgeous!

Thanks Sue! Don't you just love the Japanese poetry forms? Thanks for enjoying this.

gulnaz said...

hey russell, you really are kind to me and i love it! thanks!
wanted to ask you what is the difference between a senyru and a haiku

Russell Ragsdale said...

You're always welcome Gulnaz, and most deserving! Senyru is like Haiku in every way except the theme is about people rather than nature.

I have a great admiration for those who are able to write Haiku. It is a form of poetry that i love.
And this is an excellent example.
Senyru?
Hmmmm, I will have to discover more!
