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: Jan 22

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.

Great, MAL...glad to see you! Take a look at the discussions and let 'er rip. Post a new discussion or two, if you're inspired.

And what's this about being "Internet incompetent"? You look competent to me...we're all learning the ropes over again here.

Oh, Jaki, so happy to see you here! I've been gathering my haiku on TBD Prime and just got your PM....Glad to hear all is well. When work lightens up, please do drop by and add your words to ours!

Here we are, my friends!
Old friends, new friends, all welcome,
our new home via net!

Namaste, Lily! Thanks for adding your good energy to the group, and for the senryu. Let your creative juices flow here...the format is less appealing than at TBD Prime, and no kudos, but we're trying to make a go of it. Some things are, simply, too beneficial to let fade away. Please, invite all your friends to join us!

Inspiration at last! Namaste!

Hi Lynne...Not a silly question at all! We are all just feeling our way... Your assumptions sound good to me!

Yes, discussion threads will be our topics, and the idea of posting general comments to the wall sounds good. I think the "Reply to" that appears under each comment in the thread will be good for direct rejoinders ("answering" haiku, giving "kudos," etc.).

It will all fall into place eventually, I'm hoping. Anybody with an idea of how to make this better, please chime in...there ain't no Grand Poobah of haiku here...

When I'm all moved in
I shall come and say hello
This is just my style
