NaPoWriMo Day 10: Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant 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.
Of course, I’ve written a chain of hay(na)ku. What’s the fun of NaPoWriMo if we write just three lines 🙂 Hope it knits well together!
Paradigm of life
