The Hay(na)ku, for what it's worth...

Updated: Apr 11, 2020

(from the NaPoWriMo prompt: This is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem.)[Sigh. Not sure I want to take this seriously (Should I be taking this seriously?), but maybe that is because I have been quarantined out of my fun place.]


or not?

I guess not.

[Or more seriously...]


two squirrels

man in window.

[And then there's the whole piece about stringing them together... But doesn't that really mean a poem of three line stanzas?]


two squirrels

man in window.


in hand

day is done.


under head

dreams of birds.
