Trying out the differing haiku formats

In the 3/5/3 format:

 

Summer time

Holiday tattoo

Memories

In the 2/3/2 format:

 

Henna

Tattoo time

Sun fun!

And a new form I’ve never come across before:

Gogyohka – no restrictions…

A simple silver band

Could be overlooked

Amongst henna tattoos

Flowers escaping

Fingernails unpolished.

  1. Cool. Yes, it’s January, let’s cut back on syllables, get our haiku slim and trim. And then bust out into Gogyohka. You say that form is unrestricted… is it by coincidence that the syllable count is 6,5,6,5,6? It is balanced and to me that is why any haiku form “works”.
    Thanks for the fine poems and the education. (I prefer the last one too; there’s a bit more story there)
