Haiku & Senryu by Bonnie Scherer

 



Haiku/senryu:

 

a checkered moment …

my rook

makes the moves on you

 

//

 

the haijin barista slings one my way

 

//

 

dieting on doughnuts now… just the holes 

 

//

 

feeding the multitude Friday night fish fry

 

//

 

love is blind until it isn’t 

 

//

 

picking blueberries

in bear country —

I learn to share

 

//

 

sour grapes

sour apples

sourpuss

 

//

 

my virgin poem untouched until now

 

//
