Senryu : chess

2+

pulls the string, bolt soars
rook’s encounter, harries pawns
behold! the queen falls

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Saturday Mix: Same Same but Different had a challenge on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie to create prose or poetry using the synonyms of five words.  Here are my synonyms

draw:  draw the bowstring  :  pulls the string
fly: arrow flies : bolt soars
meet : rook’s meet : rook’s encounter
annoy:  annoys pawns  : harries pawns
look:  look!   : behold!
