haiku and senryu about annoyances

haiku and senryu about annoyances

waves pound on beaches
bad weather annoyances
powerful tycoons

trouble multiplies
filthy land based pollution
human garbage piles

dirty Chinese air
greenhouse emissions travel
across Pacific

screaming sick infants
cats fighting in the allies
dogs looking for fights

unhealthy disdain
pernicious urban status
no emission laws

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?

  1. This is indeed a life threatening annoyance. Well put in your poem!

  2. Wow! very angry and you have succeeded to put across the message! Well-said!

  3. Certainly one of the biggest annoyances that exist…bravo for using haiku to spread the word so well..@ ecology!

  4. There’s such a lot to be annoyed about, isn’t there?

  5. what scares me is “pollution island” the floating garbage pile in the paciic that is growing!
    great job!

  6. It frustrates me how so much time and effort and money is put towards global warming, yet the issues of pollution, poverty and refuse seems to be swept under the carpet (usually into landfill). Important point, well made.

  7. A great message and very well stated, Zongrik!

  8. Excellent message passed on…

  9. Nice (Poetic) way to convey a very important message!:)

  10. Very disturbing issues and I can imagine that these issues are annoying to you. Nice series of haiku and senryu.

  11. that’s a lot of things to be annoyed about. 🙂
    disturbing too, because resources are finite,

  12. Pollution by mankind, well expressed. Keep it up!

  13. Indeed, Tammy. Perfect venting haiku’s to help get it off your chest!
