Fractured Haiku/Senryu

Information

Fractured Haiku/Senryu

A place for those addicted to 5/7/5 or a more cynical, darkly funny version...Come get your fix.

Members: 77
Latest Activity: on Monday

Format

The format is simple: three lines of verse with 5/7/5 syllables, respectively.
Haiku, traditionally, must include at least one image of nature, a seasonal reference, a "cutting word" that acts as a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation of two juxaposed images, and no punctuation or similes; senryu is generally about human foibles. There are more rules to be found in the links below, if you're a purist...but WE BREAK MOST OF THE RULES HERE.

Each new discussion should act as a topic for haiku/senryu from the whole group. So, for example, the discussion "Joy" is a place to write about whatever lifts your spirits or puts a smile on your face. Sometimes, the author of a discussion may have particular criteria for what you are to write; for instance, he or she may ask that you use a specific word or words in your haiku/senryu. So be sure to read the author's instructions.

Everyone is free to post a new discussion...and please do. The more topics, the better.

I agree, BellaG!

If you post in one of the discussions, your haiku won't eventually disappear from the front page, and we can write and comment directly to it. Be sure to click on "view all" because there are MANY more discussions than show on this page. And, if you don't see one you like, please start a new one. That would be exciting!

XOXOXOXOXOX

Outdoors the weather
Is frightful. Dream of blue skies.
El Niño go away!

To be the eagle
That flies above the stormy
Selfish rants. Deep sigh.
