#Hay(na)Ku Pedestrian poetry

Pedestrian poetry

Of mine,
Lost in cacophony.

They seem,
In the melee.

How to,
Create poetry exemplary?

My words,
With all finery!

In poetry,
I desire flowery.

In soul,
Intense sentiments many.

My craving,
For august poetry!

The Hay(na)ku poem, a very simple poetic form. It was created by poet Eileen Tabios with its debut in the Philippine Independence Day, June 12, in 2003.

Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third. There are no restrictions beyond this. Multiple hay(na)ku or “sequence” can be chained together to form longer poems.

For today’s prompt, my choice is Hay(na)ku style of poetry.

Born in the year 1968, my childhood was spent amidst the beautiful scenic landscape of a small town in India, Ranchi. Though an engineer by qualification, reading, writing and cooking are my passions. Another thing that I am passionate about is my country, India. As they say, a lifetime is probably not enough to explore the whole of India. Currently based in Kolkata, I can be reached at gdutta17@gmail.com.

    1. Isn’t it quite an interesting form of poetry? I too discovered it by chance and then have grown to like it. There’s a beauty in the simplicity of this form of poetry. Had written one more with similar style….you may like to have a look at a poem titled “Divine Rhapsody” on my blog, 🙂
