Happy Fun-Fri-Yay my Friends!
Well we made it through a doozy of a week and Friday couldn’t come fast enough, so playing with Emojiku’s with my friends Goff, Anita and all of you that send them, was great fun and relief from a the crazy mixed up world.
Poetry – Air Your Dirty Clothes – An Emojiku Poem by Cindy Georgakas and Goff James
🏖 Air your dirty clothes
🌬 Throw your troubles to the wind
👕 Fabric too threadbare
🏖 Hanging in the sun
🌬 Washing drives the smell away
👕 Monday’s laundry done
Poetry – Between Yellow Leaves – An Emojiku Poem by Anita Bacha, Cindy Georgakas and Goff James
🍂 Between yellow leaves
🥀 Withering red rose petals
📖 Crumbled poetry book.
🍂 Autumns’s hues embraced
🥀 The fragrance of love’s decay
📖 Words silently penned
🍂 Etched in the indigo sky
🥀 Drizzle shades of hope
📖 Leaves petals books hues ignite light
What is emojiku?
The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas 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.
Join in the emojiku fun and share

Great fun! I like yours emojiku Idea, Cindy 😃
It was a mutual exchange that developed before our eyes.
You should play with us if you are up to it?
Welcome, Cindy. I don’t know the meaning of most emojis. Thanks for the invitation, I’ll let you know later.💖
It’s just a fun silly way to play for me. It’s essentially a haiku and in my case more of a
senryu three lines with 17 or fewer morae (or on) in total. However, senryu tend to be about human foibles while haiku tend to be about nature, and senryu are often cynical or darkly humorous while haiku are more serious.
Im just lucky he has me since I don’t keep with the rules. 😂
But then again I was the instigator, so there’s that.
No pressure!! Thanks Janet!
I am familiar with senryu and haiku. I will message you. Let me see at least two other emojiko posts before participating. 😃
For Cindy: @theuniquetimes

I just commented to you here: 3-fields entered and reentered. And then poof 💣
Thanks for the fun. See Twitter for my response, Cindy. 👏

Fun poems – such a clever idea to hybrid the icons and words
Thanks so much Yvette and not to mention how it worked into a great plug… thanks to Goff!! 💖💖🌹🌹🥰
You and Goff have a brilliant idea here that uses the very fun emoji with the beautiful placement of words and ideas. Then he topics vary so much and it is great literary fun
he’s the master mind.. I’m the playful inventor of such so it’s a great combo and organically happened.
