Five Prop Door Senryu

Prop Door

Five Prop Door Senryu

neighbor’s door ajar
welcomes all this bright new year
sympathetic home

neighbors loud music
recommence contemplation
when one shuts the door

the living room ghost
floated past the fireplace
i ran toward the door

someone closed the door
i am dying for fresh air
chokingly dusty

through welcoming doors
obdurate misconception
extract from darkness

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?
