#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.

    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, 🙂
