Senryu series syllable count 5-7-5- Ill Winds


The ill winds of fate
keeps on howling straddling
attacks the sea shore

Angry screams are heard
the tide becoming nervous
crying in the night

Thoughts start to wander
ever gathering fragments
tossing them away.

    The ill fated wind
    brings a storm surge of the mind
    cause change in our time

    The moon breathes inward
    By the sea the tides will rise
    Out and and how we fall

    An acorn for thought
    That we squirreled away
    Forgot where they lay (Report) Reply

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
