Pioneered by the singer-songwriter Wit, Zen Rock is a music genre that fuses rock music with Haiku or Senryu poetry. The music can follow the normal rock format( Verse, Chorus, Bridge, etc.), but the lyrics follow the format of Haiku or Senryu poetry.
A Haiku is an unrhymed short poem that uses the least amount of words to convey the image, essence, and or humor of an experience pertaining to nature. It is written in three lines of seventeen syllables. The three lines are divided into units of five, seven, five syllables.
A Senryu is a verse form that also follows the same form of five, seven, five syllables, but instead of nature, it addresses the human condition.
Enjoy Every Moment.
