Loveless, listless me.
Sitting near the blue stream
Forever waiting.


A senryu is a three line Japanese poem structurally similar to haiku. It is unrhymed and the subject is based on human nature. it too has three lines of verses consisting of five, seven and five syllables respectively.

PS. It is my very first attempt. :)
