One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession

Bubbling Spring

One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession

bubbling spring
bring life force to village
fierce in task

inhaling your words
i obsess on their meaning
as if they were mine

love anchors my brain
to some obsessive resolve
grips it like a vice

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

    inhaling your words
    i obsess on their meaning
    as if they were mine

  3. Ahhh, Tammy, you’ve nailed two of my favorite (!) subjects: haiku/senryu and Obsession.
    Nailed them good! Thanks for today’s inspiration. — j

  4. The bubbling spring will do that place a lot of good!! Nice words here, and very meaningful too!!

  5. Excellent descriptions. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Wow! That first one seemed more about productivity than obsession, but a beautifully concise enscapsulated communication. Loved all 3 of these! Very well done!

  7. I love the second one!

  8. Really love that second one.

    Inhaling someone else’s words can make us drunk with…the other…
