A Selection Of Senryus - 6

Individualist,
Someone’s going it alone.
No help is required.


Instrumentalist,
plays a mean, cool, saxophone
Yeah, and all that jazz.


Uncompromising,
I ain’t going to give in.
Your turn to parry.


Uncomprehending,
Might as well talk to myself.
Non compos mentis.


Quintessentially,
a great example to set.
Perfect to my mind.


Shilly-shallying,
Come on, make a decision,
I’m getting angry..

Hi Ernestine Beautifully contructed and delightfully insightful work here......with humor as well....thanks....and Happy Bithday! ! Love, D.
These are classic Ernestine! Perfectly sculptured pieces with a pleasing mix of wit and wisdom. In particular I like 'shilly-shalling'. Reminds me of my sweet son Keppel, the great 'perhapser'. Delightful poetry. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Queen Poetess....You are indeed of keen mind, and astute invention....All 6 get my 10! Solid Wirk, Birthday Gal! ~ FjR ~ ..2008..
A definitively composed set of senryus each with their own identity, particularly like 'uncompromising'. You've really mastered these Ernestine! j xx
