The Core

Today I wrote a Senryu and a Haiku, and they were both about the ‘nature’ of existence, so I thought I could present them here as the one poem … I think my idea worked ok.

The Core (a Poem)


The Core (a Senryu)


Existence crawls down

Through my neck into the heart

Of where my soul lies



The Core (a Haiku)


Through the winds of time

Existence descends from trees

Perpetually

We Lost the “A” Side (a Senryu)


There, on the “B”side

Of her undiagnosed moon

Lay my empty spoon

Tomorrow’s Cake (a Senryu)

I formed this Senryu from a comment I made in response to a poem ‘Willow’ wrote on her site on the 9th June .. thank you Willow for prompting these words … https://willowdot21.wordpress.com/2022/06/08/ronovan-writes-sijo-wednesday-poetry-challenge-13-use-future-as-your-inspiration-this-week/


Tomorrow’s Cake (a Senryu)




the future tastes like 

yesterday, but is topped with 

venom from today
