A Japenese form of poetry similar to haiku in construction: three lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5. However senryu tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nautre. Senryu do not need to include a season word like haiku. Much modern haiku is more similar to senryu than traditional haiku.
