Very well said, dear writer, social distancing is such an oxymoron. it doesn't click. Sometimes the greatest truths come in short sentences. It was great to read this work.

This is a fine thought for the Senryu Poetry writing prompt entry. Sometime short thoughts can really hit the spot, touch our heart, and even be encouraging. Well done!

So very well done because indeed social distance is an oxymoron and of course the play on oxymoron works double time in this terrific senryu. You've captured all the elements of the form beautifully.

Best of luck to you in the booth with this gem. :)

Gloria

Hello anonymous

A Relevant entry for the
Senryu Poetry writing prompt contest. I'm tired of the pandemic but we must follow the scientist advice to beat the covid19 virus.

This senryu, Social Distancing, presented as a 5-7-5, suggests that the two words do not work well together, just as the action is less than optimal.

Great writing! It compacts our present controversy in just three lines! You`re right: Social distance is an oxymoron: we live in society (not alone) but we need to have at lease 6 ft separation (alone). Difficult to be in the middle: alone, but not that far away...

Yeah,., I get it al the social distancing is touch and cramps our styles but if it saves lives, it is worth it. It isn't nearly as tragic as death.

Yes, I can see that and I think I've many people suggest the same, but that is the way of the world. We live in perpetual hypocrisy and an oxymoron state. Who dares tell the Emperor he has no clothes?

I think you have a very goo entry.

This Senryu speaks social distancing in metaphorical state of expression and states it is like tragic comedy; well said, well done; thanks for sharing this. ALCREATOR

This is a clever senryu for the contest
with a good addition to the list of oxymorons.
Tragic/comedy and social/distancing.
Well done.
Good luck in the contest.
Robert
