A Recipe(Uneven Couplet) -
The uneven couplet is paired lines of different length
rhymed or unrhymed, metered or unmetered.
That you would relish I'm sure
This recipe try it with pleasure
Clean the insight in time sufficient
Wash off anger, enmity and hate
Put the mind on the burning heart
Put in the thoughts all to melt
Ladle in between a large of intellect
Stir in hope a heapful amount
Let all blend with a bliss intent
Until valour and courage result
Throw meantime in the flaming heart
Burnt to ashes filth...
The Hay(na) ku or Jánakú is an invented verse form inspired by the haiku that is measured
by number of words instead of syllables. It was introduced in 2003 by Eileen Tabios,
the then pulisher of Meritage Press. The name Haynaku is the Tagalog equivalent of Oh My God!
The elements of the Hay(na) ku are:
a tristich, a poem written in 3 lines.
measured by number of words, L1 is one word, L2 is two words and L3 is three words.
There is no restriction on number of syllables in the words
