NaPoWriMo2020- Day 10 – Let me go

Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem. For example, you could write a hay(na)ku sonnet, like the one that Vince himself wrote back during NaPoWriMo 2012!


Quit

Telling me

what to do

 

Decide

Which side

you are on

 

Tell –

me something

I don’t know

 

If-

you care

let me go

 

Remember-

Everything happens

for a reason

 

Destiny-

fate; whatever

you call it

 

God

has a

plan for us

 

love

will finally

find the way

 

let me go
