Under Windsor Bridge Senryu

Under Windsor Bridge, 1912, by Adolphe Valette

Under Windsor Bridge Senryu

thinking in darkness
“presidential candidates?”
no hope for our future

foggy cityscape
impassioned meditation
intended hermitage

annoying, son of a bitch!
go jump off a bridge


Hear this on chirbit

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?
