MAY SENRYU FOR FAILED HAIKU

 

She was wrong
I apologized
we're friends again

 

Bogota
unlike Dave Matthews Band
really does rock

 

 

real bluegrass
that high lonesome sound
dogs yowls in tune

ROCK AND ROLL SENRYU

Rudy can't fail 

proved to be prophetic 

and then ironic   

 

London Calling was always one of my favorite albums  ~   

 

Captain Trips 

ventures into Phil Zone 

as drums fade to Space   

 

 

parking lot scene 

tie dyed vendor 

showing off wares   

 
Deadhead senryu  ~   

 

morning dew on grass 

wets my shoes and socks 

I think of Jerry

3 SEPTEMBER SENRYU

Senyru rising 

in a half empty beer glass 

sure to be refilled.   

 

 

aging hipster 

hiding behind cocktail 

never really cool    

 

 

wearing Santa shirt 

on dog day afternoon 

for shits and giggles
