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: 76
Latest Activity: Sep 17

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.

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.

Thank you for the warm welcome, Metub4 and Angharad. I do appreciate it! Poetry can be such an emotional release when needed. I am grateful for this group.

Their stormy drama.

Swirling monsoons scream at me.

Retreat to shelter.

Comment by Angharad on February 17, 2014 at 8:16pm

SCOTT!

Happy to see you--at least, whatever's left after the ice weasels... <3

Comment by Scott Williamson on February 14, 2014 at 9:39am

Love is a snowmobile...

racing across the tundra and then suddenly it flips over, pinning you underneath.

At night, the ice weasels come.
