a senryu

After all these years
my wife at the ironing board,
perfect in panties.

For decades I knew that traditional haiku dealt with nature and followed the formula of three lines with five syllables in the first and third lines and seven syllables in the second line. Maybe a year ago I found out that a senryu followed the same syllable pattern but dealt with human experience rather than nature. i may one day Google the haibun and see what its requirements are.
