Hoping, please respond, it’s here!;

Heart from…truffleturd


This haiku was inspired by an actual email received in response to a craigslist posting.  Pretty sure it was a digital age nicky nicky nine doors prankster.  What an interesting username this person chose to respond to advertisements.  Lol?

  1. Thank you spread the uh…word. Funny Story, I attempted to upload a fabulous definition for truffleturd to, however they insisted that a person must either log in via groogle or faceplace in order to do so. I don’t use either of those sites and prefer to take a somewhat less narrow view of the digital world.


  2. Hi, Tim. I think you’re right, it’s a senryu. Read my post and see if it explains it for you: Here is what I am suggesting to the participants of my challenge: A Senryu is written about love, a personal event, and have some sort of irony present. A Haiku is written about seasonal changes, nature, and change in general. I hope to see you at the challenge every Tuesday. Have fun!

    1. Thank you for weighing in on this. I suspect many English Haiku writers may be unaware that Senryu exists. This exclusion could be the result of the wide popularity of Haiku combined with the Haiku form being loosened to include subjects other than nature (as is the tradition).

      1. The distinction comes in when poets submit their work to literary journals or poetry competitions. I believe in order to be a decent poet, you must first learn the rules. Breaking them can be instant creativity. I also feel that if we self publish books of poetry we need to know the distinction between the poetry forms. As my post said, there are many hybrid haiku/senryu forms that I know I’ve written myself. When we use these forms is left up to the poet. Thanks for stopping by. I love learning about poetry and hope everyone tries writing some. ❤
