Happy Fri-Yay Emojiku Day!
Many of you who are friends with Goff James of Art, Music, Photography, Poetry and Quotations know what a brilliant artist he is on so many levels. His daily haikus and sharing of poetry and art and fellow bloggers is unsurpassed and inspiring.
He posted our Emojiku last Monday which was our first one and opened it up to others to play along.
But first a little background of how this started.
If you know me at all, you know I LOVE emoji’s and am lost without them. At one point Goff responded with an emoji here is a bit of our dialogue:
Goff: Keep Smiling.😍
Me: oooh fancy… look at you 🤣❤️
Goff: Cheers. I still remain a ‘ non fan” of emoji. However getting used to them. Happy Monday, Cindy.
Me: Cheers. It’s ok …U never need to use them with me. I’m just a fan. 💖
Me: We could do a haiku on the together 😂
Goff: Doing a haiku together sounds great. What are your ideas about going about it?
Soon after this I got comment from him saying how he was so excited because he just coined the new poetry form Emojiku. Of course I gave him a bad time since I even got him doing them. We had a good laugh over it.
I never go looking for collabs since my time is so limited but when they happen organically, like the few I’ve done, I’ve had a blast!
Enjoy our Emojiku below and play along if you want!

What is emojiku?
The emojiku came about by Cindy and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.
An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryū or haiga.
In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.
The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.
The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.
