A Selection Of Senryus - 5 - Poem by Ernestine Northover

The Coliseum
Gladiators fighting lions
Roman escapades.


Orient Express
Nostalgia of opulence
Romance on the rails.


It's a traffic jam
Cars are bumper to bumper
A complete standstill.


Tower of London
Kings and Queens beheaded here
Beefeaters patrol.

    i liked this one, p'haps the best for the excitement of the locales and events,
    Ernestine - how you coincided with a traffic jam! i'm with Duncan, i'm not sure about the structure but i want to give it a try. Susan.
