A2Z-BADGE [2015] - Life is Good

Here are a couple of poems about Valentine’s Day. They are in the Japanese form of senryu, which is basically the same as haiku, but with a people/person reference instead of nature.

Both are the same in form; it is their content which distinguishes them. They are normally short descriptive works of only 17 syllables. These are usually written in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Modern variations on this standard can be found, and many poets write haiku and senryu in 3, 5, 3 lines rather than the traditional. Other variations can also be found.

 

Valentine’s Day 1

Everlasting love

Glows in the heat of passion

Chocolate hearts melt.

Valentine’s Day 2

Flowers and chocolates

Modern tradition of love

Make me feel special.
