Remembering ~ A Trio of Senryus

Remembering ~ A Trio of Senryus

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

Moonlight fills my soul
missing you is my solace ~
is sunrise my foe?

Waves wash over me
my heart is treading water ~
no solid ground here.

I'll remember you
While I'm forgetting myself ~
how do I go on?

Wow dear friend. All three poems were amazing. You gave life to the sea and the moonlight. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry. I did like them.

One of the best aspects is your questioning, something hardly ever done in these short forms. This makes it feel as if the narrator has a gazillion agonies tugging on the soul. This is the most heart-tugging sensation I've ever got from a haiku/senryu. Usually poems of this form seem more cerebral & sterile, but yours is a grabber & a wringer (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

haunting .. brings lonely times to me nog and heart :( the sketch fits ..the colors stark yet it still has warmth ... I would say the third in the three is a haiku not senryu ... i only say that to help me keep them straight .. i can't tell you how many times i keep looking them up .. in the first, your line "is sunrise my foe?" especially catches my attention .. have not seen a question in either senryu or haiku .. but of course i haven't read all there are just yet ;) very emotive trio ...universal and relatable for sure .. glad i stopped my friend..i am going to be thinking about that line today ... pondering the sunrise
