The following comments are for "Silent swim" by dianahayes
But, I am confused, it is two double lines only? And it is 5 5 verses 5 7 5 or 3 5 3 or whatever combos there are out there, Bobby 7L is the Senryu expert of Lit.Org, I know very little about it, but I do know what I like, and this is interesting to me to say the least? Hm mm? I think this piece must have it's own category...by the way, noticed you are an old time member, don't remember reading your work before though, welcome back;-)
An interesting poem short and to the point. I kinda like it very interesting to me.

It's own genre...unique, simple, pure, no debate or explanation necessary...
...in this case this is short verse, pure and simple...lovely really.. there is no debate or genre category to put it under other than haiku that would come close to what it "feels" like upon reading, nor is there a need to explain it...it is one of those either you like it or you don't. Minimalist. Unique.
