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.

:>), SK!

I'm such a glutton for everybody's haiku! I hate it when they disappear from the comment wall so quickly.

Comment by Angharad on March 19, 2013 at 8:37pm

Oh!  I hope Sophie is doing better now, SayKath! 

If you want to write haiku about Sophie, and other pets, that are easily accessible, there's a discussion called "Animal Companions."

I just wrote a quick haiku in it so that it would come to the front page...
