Hay(na)ku

Feather
Adrift, afloat
Sway, sway, sway


Day 27 for NaPoWriMo2015 – the prompt – optional, as always — comes to us from 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.

Camellia

Outside my window
And in plain view
Posy petals
Glisten in dew

Dreaming of days
Dazzling and bright
And envy of Kings
In summer delight

Pink tulle tutus
Tipping to bow
Flowing confetti
“Grazie” then “Ciao”
