14/30 Poem A Day Challenge

April 14, 2018

morning headache

little men
pound jack hammers

is skewered
by chaotic cacophony

blinds blasts
flashing flickering halos

roils boils
recedes returns swells

of torment
pulsate relentless pain

According to Robert Lee Brewer at Writer's digest"

"Hay(na)ku is a very simple poetic form, and it’s also one of the newest. It was apparently created in 2003 by poet Eileen Tabios.

Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third. There are no restrictions beyond this.

There are already some variations of this new poetic form. For instance, a reverse hay(na)ku has lines of three, two, and one word(s) for lines one, two, and three respectively. Also, multiple hay(na)ku can be chained together to form longer poems."

  1. Interesting new form, and awful to read your poem, but it's good, too. Hope you're better by now!
