Consciousness within You

Within you
Be a light

Speak your truth
Constant Awareness


This is in 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.”
