Napowrimo 27 – Haynaku


delights us
with returning warmth.

enchants us
with speckled green.

cheer us,
attract bumble bees.

serenade us
found new families.

is rekindled
with increasing light.


The Napowrimo prompt for today is  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. We can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem

  2. This is lovely, Viv! So upbeat and spring-y…I forgot about this form – it’s a fun one, I think and I like the effect of the chain, too. 🙂
