After Diwali

  Diwali sunset...
crackers begin killing
traffic sounds

brighter Diwali…
my face lighting up
with all those sweets

Diwali after…
the smoke outlives
all vanquished demons

this Diwali...
a lone lamp makes up
for missing uncle

Comments on this Poem

Comment I consider them still haiku (also plural) as they have a season, Diwali (in Indian context,) besides being related to light and sound with a human element juxtaposed, and all verses with s/l/s lines udner 17 syllables, the last line for an 'Aha' effect. Somehow I don't put them under senryu for they are propound with little satire or humor. For a dilettante I am, at haiku, the second and third verse are accepted by Kala Ramesh in a haiku forum she monitors. Thanks for asking a right question, Padmaja ji.

Comment All nice ones! But are these Haikus or Senryus?
