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: yesterday

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.

Greetings, Risha! 

summer invades me
rose sweet mysteries blossom
in warm fertile soil

Comment by Risha Namaste on June 11, 2012 at 5:05pm

I longed for summer

the breezy maestro of heat

the cool of the nights

I, for one, am very grateful to hear that...allows me to hold on to beliefs I find essential.  Thanks, A.  I hope you are well...and loved.

not dead quite yet, D.

wind gutters the flame at times

but embers still burn

Comment by Daddieo on April 28, 2012 at 3:08am
