Hitched (Senryu)


A gold wedding band
Flashes on her ring finger
Too late to back out

    Hitched, freedom lost! Question is whose? The lady's freedom or the Man's?
    Love your choice of words. Very brief, but very effective. Nice write.. Enjoyed it. (Report) Reply

    Your expressive senryu poem, 'Hitched' is a perfectly and expressively phrased senryu, Sandra, flawless in syllable count. It was a delight to read. You excell in this charming poetic form. Carl. (Report) Reply
