Didactic Poetry is a form of poetry intended for instruction such as for knowledge or to teach. (I guess I'm teaching what I'm doing to get an idea for writing.)Now I set me
Down to write
I cannot think of what to say
Tho I've been busy all the day
Just let my fingers
Tap on keys
Until the words they start to find
That tumble swiftly from my mind
I do not know
What words they'll be
I'll just keep typing til there's sense
And I get off this writer's fence...
Okay. Got it. ( I should save one of these for writer's block day.)
Words stream meaning on
a flat, blank page creating there
a third dimension.
Most popular definition, but there is more to senryu than meets the eye: Senryu (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.
