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?”

A Poetical Treatise Upon …

A Poetical Treatise Upon…

… not writing a poetical treatise upon anything…

… as it seems a pointless thing to do.

And, anyway, the thought of a long, boring, and pointless treatise (for that is what I would write – believe me in this) is not doing anybody any favours.

You wouldn’t thank me for writing it, and I would totally appreciate why you didn’t read it.

So, in its place…

a haiku.

short, sweet, to the point,

what could possibly go wrong

writing a haiku?

anybody?”

Upon The Haiku

Upon The Haiku

A Haiku is a funny thing;

with its syllable count

and its three lines

of poetry

sticking to a strict format.

An ‘Actual’ Monosyllabic Haiku

An ‘Actual’ Monosyllabic Haiku

it is short and sweet;

and one that has no long words;

not a one at all.
