Following a Poetic Whim

Feeling--ok
Reading-- The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot
I'm listening to-- nothing

Haiku
grapes on the vine
the feel of smooth, slick orbs
purple

Lanturne
Clouds
open,
releasing
winter's crystals.
Snow.

Sedoka
Choosing a park bench
she sits and silently watches--
love is again in full bloom.

Surface calm belies
the monster lurking within--
green eyes glow intently now.

Senryu
sky dancers
twist and turn--
suspended grace

Tanka
a fog
gathers across my mind:
exhaustion.
longing for sleep, a muscle cramp
keeps Morpheus at bay

I just followed a whim today: posting an entry where I have written an example of all but one (the single Renku) of the Japanese poetic styles I've come across.
