Senryu Series-1


Mother crying
blood all over new born
father celebrating.

Sun shining bright
Children starving
Twinkling stars fading fast.

Highway crash
Brain dead
Dead men walking.

    With different interpretations of the last senryu it sounds great to feel the heart of the poet dear Tribhawan Kaul Ji
    I loved the first one most! (Report) Reply

    Valsa George: -. I am always of the opinion that a poem can be interpreted in many ways depending upon the perception of the reader. I do love your interpretation of my last senryu....dead man walking. My intention, interestingly, was totally different. I had organ donation in mind. Once organs of dead victims are harvested, those terminal cases awaiting organ transplants get a new lease of life....dead man walking. Thanks. Stay blessed./TK (Report) Reply

    At times men are so callous! They make everything a celebration, forgetting their duties! The last one is most inhuman! Seeing an accident, some people indifferently walk away without extending any immediate help! Those people are as good as dead! (I wonder If my interpretation comes anywhere near what the poet has in his mind) (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
