Senryu Soul



In a summer soul

Hoped for wishes fall like rain

On a thirsty heart


For the arid hole

Longed for kisses, long-felt pain

Melancholy start


Take the leading role

Harder misses, lesser gain

Beauty of the part


Time can take a toll

Stronger itches want contain

Hope sails without chart


Moments that time stole

Ego flinches, Id remains

Clever, never smart


Warmth does sun enroll

Pretty cinches, golden frame

The petulant dart


The heart not made whole

Why is this the sad refrain

Spirit torn apart


Sunshine feels like cold

Chill breeze pinches with disdain

Romance frigid art


Love is like a coal

Deeper ditches, shallow brain

Fire will not start

  3. Gorgeous poem, Brad.

    “Love is like a coal
    Deeper ditches, shallow brain
    Fire will not start”

    Now I know what you think 🙂
    Take care my friend. Have a beautiful Sunday.

    I had to look up what Senryu meant; have you done one of these before? As always another thoughtful poem. Love the line, “Ego flinches, Id remains”
