Strangers Among Us

After the funeral,
I walked through the street alone,
-many strange faces.

When they were dating,
He was a prince, she said yes
-became a monster.

Joey meet Dennis,
Both were the new boys in town
-a lifelong friendship.

Enjoyable and perceptive. Another excellent selection.

Oh wow, all three packed a powerful punch. They each said so much about life with so little words! Excellent.

Sometimes words speak to places we aren't aware of. Yours made me aware that I am a stranger here, reading through the words of strangers, their impressions of strangers.

I like the second one especially. He became a monster, but the syntax suggests she might have, too. Interesting.

Edward, your second senryu describes my ex-son-in-law. It was terrible.
Your third one is common, newcomers tend to support each other and become good friends.
Depending upon the circumstances and parties, most of the faces might seem strange. They did even when my ex announced she was leaving.
Good life event fitting here. Thanks,
..

Vivid triple play - each so different and yet the stranger is evident...

I liked them all. The first one was very vivid. Saying goodbye can be such a lonely experience.

Sadness, madness and happiness. Thanks for all three.

it reminds me of a beautiful quote that said " there are no strangers here, only friends, we havent met"
