Haiku Wrap Up

(Apologies to all.  Illness hit my house hard this week and a planned post this past Monday couldn't happen until, well, today.)

We've had a full month of making Poemic Haiku and I think our regular contributors have demonstrated remarkable depth and breadth in the form.  Although everyone was particularly good at noting their participation in the Poemic Inquiry (PI) on Haiku in the titles of their posts, I've included (internal) links below.  This first Poemic Inquiry exercise yielded no contributions from readers in the comments section.  That's understandable given the newness of PI and the growing interest in poemics. As we move forward with Poemic Inquiries, dear readers, please know that we encourage your sharing links to your own work in the comments section.  And if you want to become a contributor here, just ask.

So, for your quick linking convenience, here are the poemic haiku we generated in this month's Poemic Inquiry:

  • This first PI was inspired by my initial attempt here and the spirit of Márton Koppány's work here.
  • Pszren offered really interesting work here, here, here, and here.
  • Satu Kaikkonen created this work here.
  • I (Bungy32, a.k.a. Jonny) offered an additional haiku here.

(If I've missed anyone in this wrap-up, please contact me and I'll get you in this digest.  And if poemic haiku are still interesting to you, please continue to post them here.)


  1. it's a pleasure to read this, both because of the content and of the form!

    the haiku PI form was a very nice project! perhaps in a year or so we could do it again, or try something similar?

  2. Sure. Although I think anytime a poemic haiku comes to anyone, they should feel free to share it here.
