Regga Trilogy (Senryu Series)

by Samuel Black

Bob Marley’s Reggae,
Makes you move your dancing feet…
The sunshine is sweet!


“Reggae King” was he… 
Blending harmonic lyrics,
Star on Walk of Fame!


Honorable man
Order of Merit Award
U. N. Peace Medal!


Author’s Comments: Dedicated to those who appreciate the genres of quality music. Music comes with a certain quality of rhythm, harmony, and melody. One should listen to the various genres of music to appreciate the true flavor of each. Bob Marley, known as “The King of Reggae” truly had an international flavor, thus enriching the world with his special touch. One should note that the senryu poem may be written in a variety of different styles. The senryu poem is a Japanese form addressing emotions, feelings or nature. The American form and styles may deviate from the strict traditional Japanese senryu forms. However, this senryu style is in the 5/7/5 syllable format with a total of 17 syllables. The form dates back to the 15th century.
