Thoughts behind the Senryu :- Beating around the bush or going round and round in doubt, one hardly accomplishes anything. If we harmonise our inhibitions and march ahead, things may work out.
Thoughts behind the Tanka :- Trees, gladly provide shade, fruits, flowers, whatever is within their means to one and all. Not bothering much about themselves, they render help.Stationary, they may be, cheer to all, by their actions, they do bring.
Thoughts behind the Tanka :-What others see as lucky or the desired life, may be a cursed one or not that fanciful for the one living it. Many a times, the desired life, may not fulfil that person's actual needs/ aspirations.
Brief about Garland Cinquain :- This is a form of Cinquain syllable poetry with six stanzas, the first five following the Cinquain syllable count of 2/4/6/8/2 syllables and the last stanza taking lines from each of the first five stanzas. Eg of last stanza :- First line of sixth stanza is first line of first stanza, in this case ,the word many, second line of sixth stanza is second line of second stanza, in this case the words, memories shaped, so on and so forth. This is my first attempt at Garland Cinquain syllable poetry.
