today’s scribble (04/18/21) #napowrimo #senryu

Today’s prompt from NaPoWritMo is to take a chapter title and write a poem about it. I chose the book, Check Your Privilege, Lean into the Discomfort (Myisha T. Hill 2020). The chapter title that caught my attention is : ‘Once Was Colorblind, Now I See.’

These #senryu are my response. I’m using the 3/5/3 form.


the reluctant
disregard privilege
cannot see

the other
requires respect
to be seen

open eyes
embrace difference
see skin tone
