The Seven Deadly Sins of Senryu:

PRIDE

~ ~ ~

Lionize me now.
There ain’t no vainglory here
I’m the best there is.

~ ~ ~

Stand tall but know when
it’s your turn to bow down ‘cause–
life’s a turning wheel.

~ ~ ~

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

    1. Thank you! Due to the time difference, I wrote these in the wee hours of the morning and that was the first word that jumped into my head. At that hour, You don’t quibble with the muse. You just put the words on screen and reread them later and wonder where you got that from! I’m sure you’ve had moment like that!
