A Poem by Latifa

my very first senryu


Gritted teeth of ire,
she sips  her envy basking,
sickened by laughter.

Your words amaze me.. these three lines, and yet a whole world of life here. One can feel the suffering, the aching music of the laughing. So powerful. Thankful you are back with us.

thank you for the review Neville.
Very intriguing Latifa - I see a scarlet woman intent on driving a wedge between two lovers who are laughing which makes her so jealous and determined to have her own wicked brand of fun lol
I liked this - your first senryu - it read smoothly (though Im not very experienced with this form of late).
Great experimentation my friend

So much said of the way envy poisons the heart and soul of us… yet, in so very few words.
