Haiku and Senryu

SAMSUNG

This web page is a collection of my haiku and senryū poetry. These poems are observations of the natural world and human nature. Please read each three-line poem slowly and use your imagination to visualize the scene. The objective of reading haiku and senryū is to experience the moment that inspired the author to write the poem. Read each poem more than once if needed. Take your time and I hope you enjoy my collection of haiku and senryū poems.
