twin missles do strike--
flames exploding brightly now--
terrorist attack!!


shuddering in pain--
screaming in a cry of fright--
the twin towers fall.


many brave souls die--
trying to save countless lives--
heroes now, our saints.


america mourns--
thry cry for our fallen dead--
"let us NOT forget!"

this is my first attempt at writing senyru.

Great senyru. In so few words you summed up 9/11 so powerfully. You brought it to life again. The sacrifice of so many who died and those that worked at the site and are dying now because of all the toxins they inhaled. excellent. Liz

A vivid yet succinct poem that tells so much about the tragedy of September 11!
Indeed, "heroes now, our saints."
Well done.

Well done, Linda! By the way, you come up on the listings when we put "senyru poems" into the Google browser. Not bad! "9-11 (a senryu)" will remain timely. No one needs to ever label you "disabled," for your writings show how enabled you are. You are making Texas proud. Write on!

What exactly is a senyru, and the structure defining it? The words new to me. Like the bare bones elegance of your simplicity. The restraint was amazing considering the subject matter. Well done.
