April PAD Challenge 2020 Day 21: Senryu: A Troublesome Choice

a choice I don't love
moving forward, evolving
pragmatic or cold



This Senryu addresses my personal dilemma regarding archiving a creative blog that I started in 2011. In fairness, I didn't start heavily using it until 2018. The blog gets a lot of views, but these aren't translating into sales for my work. So I am trying some new approaches. Maintaining this blog was adding to my already heavy workload, so I made the decision to archive it, and I'm not sure it's the right decision.

I created this post for the April PAD Challenge prompt to write a love or anti-love poem.

Like the Haiku, a Senryu is a form of Japanese poetry using a 5-7-5 syllable count. The difference between a Haiku and a Senryu is that a Haiku is about nature and often includes a word indicating the season in which it was written, where a Senryu tends to be about personal matters and is often sardonic in tone.

If you are interested in reading more of my poetry, you can pick up my first published volume for just 99 cents here.
