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: on Wednesday

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.

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

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

nothing ever lasts

Comment by Angharad on December 10, 2011 at 5:53am

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...

bastardized haiku
