NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty-four

mum and dad cry
as teenagers fly away-
cedar lark whir

/ / /

watching Chopped – hope
at least one judge is a
raw chard liker

/ / /

mum is relieved
that rain has washed away
chalk war rider

/ / /

farm chores are done-
time now for holding hands and
acre dark whirl

/ / /

indie punk band-
nothing to do with Nascar-
hark wild racer

/ / /

middle school
art project – nature with some goth-
dark wire larch

/ / /

These senryu were inspired by today’s prompt at NaPoWriMo.

The last line of each of these poems is an anagram of my name: Richard Walker. Most of the anagrams I used were four syllables in length, so these senryu follow a 4/6/4 syllable pattern. The last one is an exception, following a 3/8/3 pattern.
