The Seven Deadly Sins of Senryu:

ENVY

~ ~ ~

He own things I lack.
She wore sequined heels, I want.
Why I lack a lot?

~ ~ ~

He’s not more lucky.
I don’t need those leather boots.
I don’t covet things.

~ ~ ~

To be continued tomorrow with another deadly sin and another senryu…

  1. I have to confess that, while I don’t envy others’ “things”–I’m terrible sometimes about letting admiration of character or personality traits slide into a kind of envy… It’s so ridiculous, really, but there’s my genuine-authentic moment for the day 🙂
