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.
