Senryu
 

 

 

Chen-ou Liu, CA

 

Is this a senryu?
what remains of vague stares
into space

 

 

steaming bacon
is a calorie just
a calorie?

 

 

verse by verse
his sermon draws me closer
to his wife's shoulder

 

 

from the podium
the first verse line rolls out

buzz of conversation

 

 

bathed in moonlight
my mother-in-law's face turns
to my friend

 

 

breezy Sunday
a nun gives her cross
to a beggar

 

 

she smiles
a Mona Lisa smile

the man behind me

 

 

Dyke March
a soft smile on her lips
as her eyes meet his

 

 

I Do...
the best man's wife
weeping

 

 

New Year's Eve
he works overtime
with the intern
