Hay(na)ku Poetic Form

  • Hay(na)ku is one of the most recent forms. It was created in 2003 by poet Eileen Tabios.
  • Hay(na)ku poems have 3-lines with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third. There are no restrictions beyond this. Placing the number of words in each line in reverse works too, sort of like a count-down, 3-2-1.

Thank you Eileen Tabios
