My thoughts on the sister/brother genre of haiku.

failed haiku - a journal of English Senryu

Alan Summers, a poet, and teacher/student of haiku and senryu has written a wonderful essay on the senryu form. Filled with great information and links to outside sources this is something you will want to read, download, and refer to in the future. Senryu is often placed two steps down from haiku, but Failed Haiku believes they can share the same pedestal. Please read and enjoy:
