TATTERED HEART (photomorph) & "she freezes him out..." (non-dream senryu) by Roswila

she freezes him out:
his anger's protective heat,
hurt its stillborn heart

[non-dream senryu written 10-28-15. From Haiku Society of America: "A senryu is a poem, structurally similar to haiku, that highlights the foibles of human nature, usually in a humorous or satiric way. ... A senryu may or may not contain a season word or a grammatical break." I'll add that often it's difficult to say whether a poem is a haiku or senryu, given that many modern writers do not as a rule use season words in haiku. I'm one of them. A season word will only show up by "accident" (so to speak) in my haiku. I.e., not by intent. However, I do employ a "grammatical break" in senryu (called a kigo in haiku) as it's become ingrained in my way of writing in such small forms. Actually, I do not set pen to paper to write a senryu. I'm always drafting a haiku. Only later do I begin to think it might more accurately be called a senryu. Lastly, as to this senryu, I observed the interaction written about from across a room, as if it were a silent movie. Photomorph "Tattered Heart" (10-27-15 022v4d) by Roswila]

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.
