    The Hay(na)ku Verse Form, a 21st century poetry form.

    Information taken from the site http://www.baymoon.com/~ariadne/form/haynaku.htm

    History.
    • Invented by poet Eileen Tabios, who is also publisher, Meritage Press.
    • Officially inaugurated on the Web on June 12th, 2003 (Philippine Independence Day).
    • The form spread through the Web to poets all over the world.
    • Eileen Tabiosinitially called the form "the Pinoy Haiku".
    • Vince Gotera proposed the name "hay(na)ku", and this name has stuck. This corresponds to a Tagalog phrase that means roughly "Oh!" or (in Spanish) "Madre mía".
    • Hay(na)ku is pronounced ai-na-koo, the first syllable being pronounced "ai" (silent aitch, like Cockneys would say it).
    Example.
    Some of the favorites in the anthology are Dan Waber's:

    Nothing
    adds up.
    Love isn't math.

    and Craig Freeman's

    Moonshine
    And great
    Quantities of hills.

    Form.
    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 chainedto form a longer poem.
    • See the anthology for more variations.
    Let's create some beautiful Hay(na)ku Poetry! Who would like to go first?
