three still haiku and senryu

Beauty of Japan

three still haiku and senryu

japanese garden
circled by snowy mountains
clench tranquility

still tidal moment
interrupted by a breeze
waves begin to form

fireworks in brain
needing your lips to touch mine
still in love with you


Written for:

Prompt #134 – still

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?

    That Japanese garden is not about to let go of its tranquility. “Clench” tells me so!
