micropoetry x 4

#2.  Write a Kimo on the subject of [jealousy] images – focused on a single frozen image (like a snapshot).

mental images, those on devices
are memories of loved ones
and our special moments

a Kimo has 3 lines; No rhymes [oops one right there!]; 10 syllables in 1st line, 7 in 2nd; 6 in 3rd.

#4. Write a Hay(na)ku about [hate] late.

steals my
time, it’s crime!

Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in 1st line, two words in 2nd and three 3rd. There are no restrictions beyond this.


#5 Write a Naani about [time] naan, not bounded to a particular subject, depends upon human relations

naan is a delicious
Indian bread
used to scoop up
my meal, it’s ideal

Naani is 4 lines, the total consists of 20 to 25 syllables, this one has 20 syllables

#6. Write an Oddquain about [poverty] fear, something that is eating away at many of us.

about things unknown
stealing our calm causing harm

Oddquain is a short, usually unrhymed poem consisting of seventeen syllables distributed 1, 3, 5, 7, 1 in five lines, developed by Glenda L. Hand. Definitely not my favourite!

two more for Val’s ASH challenge! – sorry Val changed it to topics that fitted for me!


  1. Haha! I love your topics and the Naani on Naan is delicious! I had a box mix for naan and gave it a try – it tasted great but wasn’t near as pretty as the naan made by the professionals! As for the rest I have to say that the Hay(na)ku is so very good! You really mastered the conciseness of this form… These were worth the wait!!

  2. Wonderful powerful Micro-4!!!!
    OHMYGOSH! The last one really touched my heart and soul! I need to memorize that one so I can quote it often.
    Whether you write Micro or Macro or Midco (Medium/Middle-sized! HA! 😀 ) poems, you write so beautifully! 🙂
