Trying out the differing haiku formats
In the 3/5/3 format:
In the 2/3/2 format:
And a new form I’ve never come across before:
Gogyohka – no restrictions…
A simple silver band

Nice Haikus! I didn’t even know there were alternative forms, pretty cool.
All beautiful, but I especially like the Gogyohka
That’s my favourite too Willow. 🙂
It a true work of art 💜
These are lovely, Marje. I’ve never heard of a Gogyohka. Nicely done.
Thank you Diana. Me neither. 🙂
Liking the different verses and experimentation!
Thank you Traci it’s fun to try new forms. 🙂
Yes, it is! I hope to get back to it next week!
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)
Purely coincidence. That’s interesting! I prefer the longer ones too. Thanks for commenting. 🙂
Well done with all three forms, Marje. Your Gogyoka is impressive. I’m trying to find more information about this form and will share when I do. <3
Thanks Colleen. I’m glad I had a go. It was fun. 🙂
Bravo, Marje! Thanks for sharing these with us. Cheers! 🙂
Thank you Natalie. 🙂
