    This is a wonderfully written senryu, Sandra, a very expressive one. I think it might be a little better if you switched the second and third lines and dropped the word 'it, ' like this: 'Goodby sailor man/ Our short lived friendship/ ended when you jumped ship! ' That way, you saved the best and most impactful line for last!

    And all nice girls love a sailor. My first love was studying to be an officer in the Navy and it was the uniform that did it for me! Clever work Sandra. 10 Karin Anderson
