Birds in Six Words

NaPoWriMo DAY TEN 10 April 2020

Created by the poet Eileen Tab and named by Vince Gotera, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. The hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem. For example, you could write a hay(na)ku sonnet, like the one that Vince himself wrote back during NaPoWriMo 2012!

Happy  writing!

6 x Hay(na)ku


soar easy

lost in sky


flint dart

nest delivers blessings


intrepid wise 

owns the night


yellow beak

intones dawn concert


saves buddy

jumps bumps revives


handsome predator

leave robin alone


haunting call

forest’s untold allure


precious song

scintillates silver pearls
