Three Covert Senryu
enfettered to state
introduced by baleful chuch
shadowed before the spotlight
opaque and covert
strangest covert cloud
meandering in dark sky
Prompt #98 “covert”
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?
This sounds like a very angry poem. Well written though.
Very powerful words today. Excellent.
To the point and meaningful.
Love the line “opaque and covert”
Thank you for inspiring me…

Creative haiku set… I like the baleful church and supernatural ~
Very intense. I’m not familiar enough with the politics, but your statement is very strong. K.
Hmm.. dark,stark,leaves a lot of space for Reader to wonder.You build up effects well. 🙂
Well done … senryu with a political touch.
Richly said with dark overtones.
haiku/senryu with political touch, I loved all three of them. you were honest and brave with your feelings, and that’s what makes your senryu poems powerful.
