Korean Sijo-poetic formThe Korean Sijo is a form of lyric poetry. It uses parallels between nature and humanity. Common poetic tools used in the form are: wit, double entendre, puns, consonance, and assonance. The common structure one encounters usually is the event/turn/twist+conclusion which ties everything together. There are three lines with a major pause at the half for each. It has a minimum of 44 syllables and some leeway for 1-2 syllables more or less.Korean Sijo-poetic form by KimchiMuse
3 4 major pause 4 4
3 4 major pause 4 4
3 5 major pause 4 3
This structure is based on phrasal syllables.
Here are some translated sijo by Jaihiun Kim:
When pear-blossoms were raining down
we parted with tearful hugs.
Now an autumn wind knocks off the leaves
and I wonder if my love thinks of me.
Only my lonely dream comes and goes
a thousand leagues between us.

lostDriving to work in the rain. Again. The leaden sky drearily threatens storms which are forecast all day. It might be Friday, but all the signs point to a tough workday ahead. To keep grumpiness at bay, I concentrate on the upbeat music blasting from the car’s speakers. Still, I’m wistfully wishing I was home writing poetry or finishing my fanfiction instead. Slowing at an intersection, a white-dotted circle catches my eye in the grass near the curb. A dreamy smile is born.lost by ArwynRie

Welcome to HaikuWriMo Bingo!Greetings haiku enthusiasts, and have we got a surprise for you!Welcome to HaikuWriMo Bingo! by Nichrysalis
This month, during our first celebration of our HaikuWriMo, we'll be doing rounds of Bingo to help urge your creative spirits to get to haiku writing. There will be fun, and our prize pool is always on the lookout for more donations to either myself or betwixtthepages.
We've prepared a multitude of prompts from all but three of the group's genres to serve as the numbers for our gameboard, and we are also welcoming two new additions to the gallery, the Erotic genre for sensual content (but not explicit), and the Epistolary Genre for haiku letters.
Without further chattering let's get right into how this works, shall we? Here is the gameboard I'll be playing with:

PE - SciFaiku Poetry FormWhat on earth is SciFaiku?PE - SciFaiku Poetry Form by vespera
SciFaiku (science fiction haiku) is a minimalist science fiction poetry form similar to traditional haiku. According to Wikipedia (grain of salt guys), the earliest publication of SciFaiku was likely in 1962. It became known officially as SciFaiku in 1995 when the SciFaiku Manifesto was posted up by Tom Brink. (At the time of finalizing this article, the website is down; however, I have seen it go down and come back up before, so it's worth saving. They may be having server issues.)
How does one write SciFaiku?
SciFaiku is written like traditional contemporary haiku, and as such, SciFaiku seeks a sense of immediacy. A capture of a moment. A directness of expression, avoiding abstractions. A good SciFaiku does not make any judgments. Conveying a feeling of immediacy is important. Here's an example:

Senryu, and How It Differs from HaikuCompared to other styles of poetry under the category of Haiku and Eastern, there is comparatively little published about the more aggressive senryu.Senryu, and How It Differs from Haiku by Jade-Pandora
Senryu, whose name means river willow, uses humor and satire to examine human society. Senryu takes on the form of haiku, but makes greater use of punctuation techniques (ellipses, exclamations, etc.) to convey its point. Senryu can use seasonal kigo, but do not rely on them. In senryu, the seasonal reference should be second in importance to the human portrayal. Contrary to popular belief, not all senryu is humorous. Many express misfortune, eroticism, political views (very important), religion & spirituality, and even anger (observational, not overflowing emotion like tanka). It is often bawdy, devoid of the subtle beauty known in haiku. Animals can also be represented through interaction using human personifications.
Originating during Japan's Edo period, senryu reflected both the societal and political turmoil of the time perio

Ever wanted to write a haiku outside of the boundaries of nature? Multhaiku wants you to do just that! We encourage haiku to be written in a number of genres and forms such as science fiction, horror, fantasy, romance, spiritual, transgressive and even found haiku! Please keep in mind what we do and do not accept.
What we accept
Other Eastern or minimalist poetry
What we don't accept
We prefer if haiku submitted doesn't follow the 5-7-5 rule, but we are lenient and this is not a strict rule.
Free verse, unminimalistic forms, long form poetry.
Let's play a little game, then. To start, get three d12 (twelve-sided dice) - don't have any, or too lazy to get out of your chair? Lo and behold, an online dice roller: It's dangerous to go alone, take this!Find their prompt list here (you'll need it to win!
Alright, assuming you have your dice now.
You sure you're ready?
No going back.
Ok, let's roll. Literally, roll your dice. Got three numbers? Good.
Below there's three tables. Just take your three results and look their numbers up in the tables.
So if you rolled a 3, a 9, and 5, you'd look at table 1, entry 3; table 2, entry 9; and table 3, entry 5. Easy as that.
You should (really, it's not that hard. I think you can do this.) get a subject-y thing, a descriptor, and either an image or a pretty short poem. There's your prompt. Off ya go.
