  7. i agree Polona, it is a senryu... through laziness I put them all under the haiku category, figuring senryu can be considered a subset of haiku

    hi ppp - the finger is healing nicely, thanks for asking

  8. This is *great*. I love it. Not sure that I would consider it a senryu, actually. It flirts. Senryu are characterized by their satire of human foible.

  10. ah, you see... this is precisely why I just call everything a haiku... I agree magyar, its a label only...
