There's something about a Senryu journal. It always puts me in a good mood. Maybe it's the knowledge that I am not the only one suffering from numerous -isms and -itises. I downloaded a couple of them earlier in the day to occupy the hour at my son's evening football classes, they’d be a treat to reward my busy day. I stroll about the grassy periphery of the ground while an evening sky extinguishes the winter sun and whoops of jubilant boys punctuate the wind. Thoroughly immersed in the cell phone, I stoically ignore the banter of waiting mums around me. Time and again a cheeky verse makes me grin.

‘Perhaps, she’s texting a lover…’ an onlooker whispers.

peep toes
the mosquitos don't mind
my sarcasm
