I
love you
So do you

I’d like to thank the inventor of the hay(na)ku for creating a form that’s so incredibly short that it can be done even when very, very tired.

Yesterday the hay(na)ku was introduced. I like how short they are, and that they invite you to take the core of something. The ones I read of other poets were mainly longer, combining several hay(na)kus in a longer poem. I hope I can write one of those too, when inspiration hits. For now, day 28 of #NaPoWriMo is done.

Day 27. The prompt was to write a hay(na)ku. A (hay)naku 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. They said nothing about a syllable count. It’s a nice form to play with, I’ll probably end up making more.
