    Miku Anyone…?

    Poet Kevin Taylor has created a new form of poetry called the “Miku.”

    Miku is a very shortened form of haiku.

    Mr. Taylor attempts to achieve the essence of haiku outside of mechanical structure through "Miku", which was derived from “minimalism” and “haiku.”

    MIKU..(pronounced Mee-ku) has been called the irritating 'little brother' of haiku because its form was derived from the older traditional Japanese haiku.

    The Miku usually has three lines with no syllable, punctuation, or capitalization requirements. Additionally, titles and rhyming are not required as well.

    In fact, when writing Miku, the goal is to achieve the spirit of a haiku, using the fewest and simplest words. Some Mikus are only a few words long!

    Minimalist means “of or relating to, or done in the style of minimalism" and minimalism means "the theory or practice in art or design of using the fewest and simplest elements to achieve the greatest effect.”
    (American Heritage Dictionary)


    Below are some examples.

    clatter fades
    quiet
    afternoon air
    ~

    echo
    pause
    empty
    ~

    bullet hole
    cherry blossom
    second thought

    So let’s have some fun with this and I will start…

    I'll have a go at a miku.... Title and punctuation is required naught - but I will title this miku and it has a comma in it = go figure, I'm difficult...

    Unconditional

    He didn't call
    again, yet
    still I love him


    Kind of dump I know, but it's unconditional love...
    Perhaps tis unconditional stupidity...?

    Have you a miku to share? Share it here then.

    interesting - is that a study in trimming pubes? LOL - this is sensual somehow - a few different interpretations of this one. Could be "Midnite at the Black Diva Hair Salon" hmmm
