Hay(na)ku: One of many Haiku Wannabes

The Hay(na)ku is one of many poetry forms classified as a Haiku "wannabe". emoticon :winking: It has three lines, though instead of counting syllables it counts words, and instead of five-seven-five the count is one-two-three. No rhyming is required. I often say this myself, but I actually read where I found this poetry style, that several Hay(na)ku can be put together to form a longer poem. :)

Quiet...

Nephew sleeping

On the couch.

In

An hour

Dad will come.

Nephew

Will go

Home with him.

Sorry that was basically what my previous post (Haiku) was about, but I've had a lot on my mind of late and the muse is not flowing really freely. ;p
