And so forth


beyond existence

his ashes embraced

Twiglet #324


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.
