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.

HAHAHAHAH!!!

NOPE...nothing at all. I was lying.

Hi BB! Thanks for joining us.

As you will see, this is a place to express yourself without much restriction. If you're a haiku purist, I'm afraid we transgress almost all the guidelines. But we certainly do enjoy ourselves!

So jump on in and get those creative juices flowing in 5/7/5!

i apologize

noble tradition altered...

A tribute...
iCan

iWill
Pick up the pieces
When things fall apart
And puzzle out
A prettier picture.

iAm
Succeed(ing) still despite
When rocks are thrown
And hit their mark
A bruised brilliance. 

iShould
Throw caution to the wind
When faced with a choice
And aim at transcendence
A lunar legacy.

iMight
Discover greater reflect
When faced with obstacles
And still to persevere
A sparkling struggle.

iMust
Play games with fate
When kicked with doubt
And start to ascertain
A willing wonder. 

iWill
Draw inspiration
When faced with blocks
And carry on
A daring dream. 

iCan
Because you did.

dark and yellow skies

future to be determined

let it come I say

 

I hope all are safe and secure this eventful day on the Eastern shores and in New England.  Be well.  Be safe.

I love that, Daddieo! What a wonderful way to express it.
Comment by Daddieo on August 12, 2011 at 5:15am

innocence leaves little bits

of me on the floor
