King of the Road? — Six Word Saturday —

.my six words:

He isn't king of the road
.

Follow me not close
I think I'm king of the road
Till I lose my load
.
My logs are blackened
Seared by Texas forest fires
Sawmill saves the day
.

This a set of two Senryū poems. A Senryū is is a Japanese form of short poetry having three lines with 17 or fewer total syllables generally with five, seven, and five syllables in each line.

Senryū tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryū are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are more serious. Unlike haiku, senryū do not include a kireji (cutting word), and do not generally include a kigo, or season word.

Two neat senryu, Jim.
 
very good advice. One of those giant round haybales rolled off a trailer inches in front of us once.
 
That is wise advise... and I don't think I'd want to be too close if those babies decided to go rolling.........
 
great image a poem! Well done Jim!
 
Are you sure he's not? Great poem to go with such a heavy photo! Thanks!
 
I lived in Tillamook Oregon when I was growing up. Big logging country back then.

Have a terrific day. :)
 
I'm thinking I would stay a bit back if behind that load of logs! Great senyu; I didn't know what one was with that type of poetry until you described it!

stopped by from 6WS; have a great Sunday!

betty
