Hips, Hearts – NaPoWriMo Day 27

The NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 27 is to write a hay(na)ku. This is like a haiku, but focuses on the number of words and relaxes the usual “rules” of haiku. The form was invented by an American teacher, to be more accessible for her students and easier to write. It’s a stanza consisting of three lines, with one word in the first line, two in the second and three in the third. You can write a hay(na)ku “sonnet” by stringing four stanzas together, and ending with a couplet of three words per line.

hips
sway like
Chubby Checkers’ girl

hips
sway wide
for her lover

lips
move on
and kiss another

hips
age, erode
swap out parts

lips
still fickle
swap out hearts

hips will heal
hearts still reel
