game piece

playing the
yin and yan
of home and self,
puts a game piece
into his pocket

What is a sherku?

Inspired by David Zinger's posting for Joyful Jubilant Learning blog this month, I found myself writing something very close to this in the comments.

Note: this is a new layout for sherku. I am deliberately deviating from the haiku-like origin of three lines and shifting to the more American 3-4 syllable phrase and running five lines to still reach 19 syllables overall. I'll acknowledge William Carlos Williams work as a key source for this change.
