Two Senryu published

I recently had two senryu published in Failed Haiku – A Journal of English Senryu, Vol. 2, Issue 14, February 2017

Senryu has been defined by the Haiku Society of America as “…  a poem, structurally similar to haiku, that highlights the foibles of human nature, usually in a humorous or satiric way.”
