Senyru #1

"SENYRU #1" - Marion Clarke


insomnia
wardrobe gapes...
skeletons


BIO: Originally from Northern Ireland, Marion Clarke has had many non-fiction articles published in the UK trade press. When she moved back to Ireland after thirteen years, winning first prize in a short story competition prompted her to return to fiction and poetry writing. Last year she had another short story published in an anthology for young adults. While still a student, one of Marion’s poems 'Written at 10.35pm while looking over Carlingford Lough' was highly commended by Frank Ormsby, Northern Irish poet. Marion began studying and writing senyru and haiku two years ago and has become passionate about the form.
