Elemental Senryu: Fire

Elemental Senryu*

*A collaboration with Rosema from A Reading Writer

Rosema writes short fiction, poems and posts about the books she’s reading.
Hop on over to check out her site and pick up a recommendation or two for your next read.


Purifies loved gold,
strongest metals bend, mold
licks life new or old.

Sparks fly catch on wood;
sparks in your eyes burn your heart–
fires rage in both.

Well that’s all folks! This is the last post in the series Rosema and I did. We hope you enjoyed reading these senryu as much as we enjoyed writing them.

    1. Well the one I have done so far worked like this: I commented on Rosema’s senryu and over comments we got to talking and she asked if I wanted to do a collab. I said yes. We got together over google+ which has a chat feature and shared a google doc where we could both add text. Rosema suggested the topic, the 4 elements. She wrote several Senryu and then I wrote mine using the same theme and making connections where I could between them. We went back and forth a few times over images and timing of the post and that was it. It was so fun. I want to do another collab soon! Have you ever done a collab?
