More Mud!

As you may have noticed from my recent posts, I’ve been playing around with writing haiku. I’ve always loved this poetry form, but have never taken the time to really work on it.

Yesterday, I wrote a haiku, read it, and thought to myself, “I don’t think that’s a haiku.” Sure enough, it seems to be a related form, called senryu. See what you think:

Muddy shoes slip quick;
seek soft, rain-soaked grass to clean…
But what? Not more mud!

What are your thoughts?
