Sa sobrang lungkot ko feeling ko nagkaron ako ng haiku moment. ewan nga lang kung haiku ang lumabas.

His words were fingers
reaching out, squeezing
clawing at nothing

Hi, stephie!

First of all, very nice poem. Ang lakas ng dating ng image sa akin. This is more of senryu (kasi human emotion and experience lang.)Pag may reference to something in nature (plants, animals, mountains,water, etc.), haiku.

But in my opinion, senryu is a special form or a subset ofhaiku. Many haiku are products of the school of thought that humans arealso part of nature... to which I agree.
