Writing Hay(na)ku

Some days are just as simple as this.

And today’s 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. 

Today letter makes today's NaPoWriMo prompt easy. It  just rolled off my fingers as I was typing it. That doesn't always happen. After having read some fellow poet friends hay(na)ku, I feel pretty good about today's poem. Although it is a rather strange name for a poetic form, Hay(na)ku, sounds like some sort of a mixed drink, or an exotic bird.

A bit of update on my A Round of Words in 80 Days.

This Week:
     *Reading: about halfway through Murder in the Mews (Agatha Christie) and started Let's Pretend This Never Happened : (Jenny Lawson, also known as, The Bloggess).  You should check out her website.
     *Writing: I have been keeping up with the blog challenges, NaPoWriMo and Blogging A to Z.
     *Theatre Stuffs: rehearsals for Zombie Prom and Aesop's Foibles are coming along and that's keeping me pretty busy between the days.

Final goals for the month of April:
    *Writing: write the flash fiction for #writestuff's monthly challenge which ends tomorrow. Not that I can't do. In fact, I will! Stay tuned. And after all ROW80 is flexible.

A Round of Words in 80 Days, the blog challenge that knows you you have a life. Come and visit the Blog Hop!


  1. YES this is fab. I really like it a LOT :)

  2. I'm impressed you're keeping up with both Blogging A-Z and NaPoWriMo. And that's not all--keeping up with other things as well. All in all, a good check-in and a very interesting poem. :)
