Pain: Senryu

Heartbreak’s a searing

pain with no gain but a lot

of weight from ice-cream.


It’s official- I’ve written my first senryu. Comes a little late, I know, since for most poets haikus and senryus are one of their first poems. But what the heck, I’m not most poets, I guess. I’d read somewhere that a lot of times senryus are a satire on human feelings, so I’ve tried to do that here.

Vanishing off the face of the blogosphere for two weeks and coming back with a paltry seventeen syllables and an author’s note longer than the actual stuff? That’s me. In the words of Tanushka, itne paise mein itnaich milega.
