NaisaiKu!

Welcome to
Wendy Naisa's
NaisaiKu!


The following are some examples of my cyclical Haiku style poetry:
THE RULES FOR
NaisaiKu!
www.sewina.blogspot.com
All you do is write a Haiku of five, seven, five syllables
then re-enter the first line as the central TITLE
then reverse the cycle so line 5 reads the same as line 3
line 6 reads the same as line 2
and finally line 7 should be the same as line 1 and line 4.
And that’s about it!

So you should end up with seven lines and 39 syllables.

Just to make things more complicated there's also a forty-one syllable NaisaiKu
where the second line is repeated as the TITLE, in some ways this seems the more logical way to go as the piece then can be read as three seperate Haiku, almost...

Here's an example of a 41 syllable NaisaiKu which is also known as a Cycliku!

it don't have to rhyme
forty-one silly-billy
on just a few lines
FORTY-ONE SILLY-BILLY
on just a few lines
forty-one silly-billy
it don't have to rhyme


You can make Just for fun NaisaiKu rhyme or not.

Finally, you can of course use the third line as the TITLE if you need to emphasise something like this, perhaps:

Shout out, shout it out!
SHOUT OUT, SHOUT IT OUT!
Shout out, shout it out!


The rules are so simple that you could even convert
an existing Haiku into this style if you so wish.
Just a bit of fun!
