What is the Difference between Haiku/Senryu Poetry?

Here is an in-depth description of English Haiku/Senryu Poetry (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

      • That’s terrible, far too hot. Here in Taranaki where I live it hasn’t been too hot 25 degrees is about the top heat, we are getting cool South-Westerlies from the antarctic flowing across us, which is nice but it feels like Autumn already. They say it something to do with the hot weather you are having in Australia, and the sea is very warm, funny but strange weather patterns. Stay cool if you can my friend.
