Senryu : chess

pulls the string, bolt soars
 rook’s encounter, harries pawns
 behold! the queen falls

senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

Saturday Mix: Same Same but Different had a challenge on Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie to create prose or poetry using the synonyms of five words. Here are my synonyms

draw: draw the bowstring : pulls the string
 fly: arrow flies : bolt soars
 meet : rook’s meet : rook’s encounter
 annoy: annoys pawns : harries pawns
 look: look! : behold!
