Late Night Senryu

The computer whirs

Loudly in the silence of

The flashing green dark

The horror of sound

breaking the soft,  warm silence

I am not ready,

Gentle hands stroke hair,

Uttering that which cannot

otherwise be said

 

I’ve just discovered that if you use the 5-7-5 syllable poetry format, but discuss emotions rather than nature, the poetry style is a senryu, not a haiku!
