song tapping my mind
lyrics bubbling through the pen
who can add the notes

ok, now to finish.  I think it’s natural for poets to write lyrics because that’s all Continue reading senryu : song

Senryu : inchoate

3+

Inchoate chaos
very many things to learn
beginnings are fun

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I love that word: inchoate; that lovely scrambly feeling when you’re just beginning.  Where will the road lead? Look! A faroff goal with no dots connecting here and there yet.  Oh, no that’s not it.  Maybe it’s over there. Who wants the journey planned out before they start? I love unexpected discoveries.  Still Plan B should be packed; in case things go wrong.  Sometimes, you end up on Plan Z.  That’s ok too.

Senryu : breakfast

spinach omelette
hashbrowns crunching, black coffee
sluggish mind perks up

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Coffee is my magical talisman.  Trust me, without it, the sun does not rise. You say it does?  I don’t think so!  Closes my eyes and goes back to bed.  Wake me up when the coffee’s done.

Senryu : I’d rather be on Mars

Wish I were on Mars
a lost civilization
grand discovery

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

I love science-fiction, more than partially because I’ve always wanted to be a space explorer and visit new planets and alien civilizations. Unfortunately I’ve been near-sighted since I was 6 so that dream died an early death.  And as they say, those who can’t, write!  It’s probably why my stories are fantasy or sci-fi.

Senryu : parachute bridal gown

3+

World War Two bride’s dress
parachute silk — blushing gal
survivor’s love gift

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Thinking about time.  This dress, because it was made of parachute silk came from a specific time in history.  During WWII, silk was a rare commodity because much of it was used for parachutes.

A GI presenting his fiancee with his parachute was not just giving her silk so that she could create a bridal gown.  The parachute may have saved his life so that he could come back to marry, a precious memento of his surviving when so many did not.

I saw this today at the Pima Air & Space museum.
