Butterflies on branches – الفَرَاش

ظننت بأني قد رأيت الاوراق الساقطة

الى أغصانها ترجع

و لكنها كانت الفَرَاش

What is Haynaku? — August 16, 2019

What is Haynaku?

By Lawrence Eberhart | March 1, 2013

Vividly short poetry, like haiku only very different… 1 word, 2 words, 3 words
and visa versa.
Creating imagery or conclusions with only six words in all…

Invented by poet Eileen Tabios,

Officially inaugurated on the Web on June 12th, 2003

The form spread through the Web to poets all over the world.
Eileen Tabios initially called the form “the Pinoy Haiku”.

Vince Gotera proposed the name “hay(na)ku”, and this name has stuck. This corresponds to a Tagalog phrase that means roughly “Oh!”.

Variations:
○ In the ‘reverse’ haynaku, the longest line is placed first and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.
○ Multiple hay(na)ku can be chained to form a longer poem.

Example Poem

Haynaku # 1

Understanding
does not
solve the problem.

Taking thoughtful action
most usually
does.

Marriage proposal fail! – فشل خطوبة الزواج

A man from (the tribe of) Bani Kilab once wished to propose to a woman. So the woman’s mother said: “Wait until I inquire about you”. So he left and asked about the most respected person in the area. So he was guided to an old man who was good at praising and the young asked him to praise him in front of the woman’s mother. So he agreed.

Then the lady came to him and asked him about the young man. So he replied: “I raised him myself”. Then she asked how eloquent he was. So he replied: “(he is) the master of his people and the one who speaks for them”. Then she asked him about his bravery. So he replied: “The protector of his people an their refuge”. Then she asked about his benevolence/chivalry. So he replied: “(he is) the tranquility of his people and their spring”. And then the man appeared so the old man said: “What an excellent entrance! Neither very uptight nor very loose”. Then the man came close in order to greet them. So the old man said: “What an excellent greeting! He was neither condescending nor was he feeble”. Then the man sat down so the old man said: “How excellently did he sit! How orderly!”.

So the youth tried to move a little bit and accidentally passed gas. So the old man said: “How excellently he has passed gas! How very melodious! It was not loud and it was not sudden”. Then the embarrassed youth stood up. So the old man said: “How excellently he stands! He did not sway in the least!”. So the young man hurried away and then the old man said: “How excellently he walks! How very much in rhythm his footsteps are!”.

Then the woman’s mother said: “Get me someone who will bring him back; if he is suitable we will get him married”.

(I don’t know if the story is real).

ثَمَانِيَةٌ —

ثَمَانِيَةٌ

ثَمَانِيَةٌ تَجرِي عَلَى النَّاسِ كُلِّهِم *** وَلا بُدَّ لِلإِنسَانِ يَلقَى الثَّمَانِيَهْ

سُرُورٌ وَحُزنٌ وَاجتِمَاعٌ وَفُرقَةٌ  ***  وَيُسرٌ وَعُسرٌ ثُمَّ سُقمٌ وَعَافِيَه

Eight matters come to everyone *** that these eight must meet man is doubtless

Joy, sadness, meeting and parting *** ease and hardship as well as good health and sickness.
