New beginnings
Starting with today

Happy Birthday, me
Pausing, celebrating

This is in Hay(na)ku and Reverse Hay(na)ku form.

“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.

Hay(na)ku is considered a modern poetry genre, first presented in June 2003.  According to J Zimmerman, in a traditional Hay(na)ku, there are:

A tercet: 3 lines.
A total of 6 words: 1 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 3 in the third line.
There is no restriction on syllables or stressed or rhymes.


In the ‘reverse’ haynaku, the longest line is placed first and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.
Multiple hay(na)ku can be chained to form a longer poem.”

    Becca, I’m aware of this wonderful blogging friend, Victoria, who invites people to share all sorts of styles of poetry. Here’s a link to her site: http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com/2011/05/23/monday-morning-writing-prompt-the-month-of-may

    Her spirituality shines through in her poetry, her articles and comments.
