love in silence.
than words uttered.
morning coffee cup
you always loved.
shared in winter
you will weather
holding each other.

J is for Jánakú.
The Hay(na)ku or Jánakú is an invented verse form inspired by the haiku that is measured by number of words instead of syllables. It was introduced in 2003 by Eileen Tabios, the then pulisher of Meritage Press. The name Haynaku is the Tagalog equivalent of Oh My God! The elements of the Hay(na)ku are:
a tristich, a poem written in 3 lines.
measured by number of words, L1 is one word, L2 is two words and L3 is three words. There is no restriction on number of syllables in the words.
variable, the line order can be reversed, or the form can be chained to create a series of Haynakus.
