Sijo, Haiku, Senryu and Ninette have their own forms, they limit as well as enhance the imagery of poems.

Sijo-Beauty of Bluebell

Bluebell flowers are admired for their pleasant colors
But they are worth a lot more than their beautiful appearance
Many medicines are hidden in them, research still goes on.

Sijo-Baby's cry

When that baby cried unnecessarily, grandmom cuddled him
But his mom did not give attention to his tantrums because
She had to be strict to make him change this budding bad habit.

Haiku, Senryu and Ninette

Haiku-Flash floods
Dry lake never filled -
house built over it saw flash
floods on all big rains

Haiku-Lone wolf
Old wolf sent out of
the pack hunts small animals,
enjoys solitude

Senryu-Public speaking
Story is the same
lips that spell out to people
makes the difference

for hurdles
on the walkway
Often leads to falls
Which caution the
person on
all next
