#Senryu #Poetry

Anger – blind alley
an irresistible walk
for some bullish freaks

***

Bare teeth, bulging eyes
hurl hollow words of dissent
to intimidate

***

Whimsical horses
with stirrups of fervent ire
perilous morons

***

Do they care for you?
beware, they are pretenders
with capricious love

  1. That’s brilliant, Balroop! And how true that anger is a blind alley. I loved your use of “bullish freaks’ and “Whimsical horses with stirrups of fervent ire.”

  2. This is amazing, Balroop. Such descriptive but unusual words for a common human emotion–anger. It can become like “whimsical horses with stirrups of fervent ire” before we realize what’s happening. Brilliant Senryu!

  3. Thankfully, anger is not an emotion I feel or am on the receiving end much these days, but when I was younger… tornados had nothing on me, lol
    Wonderfully written, Balroop. You’ve caught the energy of rage perfectly.
