Senryu Entry Page:
Definitions, Pronunciation, Examples, Links

by Ray Rasmussen

[Entry Page] [Definitions] [Links]

This web site is meant to help persons interested in the senryu genre orient themselves to the differences between haiku and senryu and to current Western senryu practice. Examples of senryu are contained in the links.

The information on this site has been developed from discussions on the World Haiku Club's Senryu E-Forum and from searches for senryu-related sites on the Internet.

A word of warning. If you are looking for a definitive answer to the question: "What is senryu and how does it differ from haiku?" you will not find it here. But you will find some useful information and gain insight into the form. Like Western haiku, Western senryu is still in the process of being defined.
