atmosphere the day I heard
you have lung cancer

    This short and powerful Senryu needed to be highlighted. In three short sentences I was in tears. Very powerful and the message says it all... very touching piece by Mr. Darcy!

    This is one of those little poems that stops you in your tracks.
    A Senryu of perfection. There is a turn in line three, it is a turn in tense and a line that gives hope. 'Have' was used instead of 'Had'. This person is still fighting and if this is based on real experience then good luck to them. Syllables correct.
    10 points from me.

    It's fascinating how few words could have such huge impact, very great read Michael and deserves to win.
    Take care
