EZ-PZ Writes – November 27, 2022

day

gentle

as the sun sets

pale moon rises

quiet

night

Hay(na)ku

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.

Variations:

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.
