A Badriomaku and two Haiku

A Badriomaku and two Haiku

(With a syllable count of 2-3-5-1-5-4-5, the Hungarian Badriomaku is interesting in that it gives you a structure that doesn’t fit any preconceived ideas).

“Today,

It is said,

is a special day.”

“What?”

“Today is Wenn’s Day;

when all is free,

and debts are cancelled.”

“Badriomaku?

That’s not a poetry form –

You just made that up!”

“Oh, yes, so I did!

What kind of a fool am I

to do such a thing?”
