Noku #1

My husband coined the term “Noku” for poems that sound and feel like haiku, but don’t actually follow the “rules.”

I’m just back from a lovely, warm visit to Arizona, which means dealing with a pile of mail, things that have to be done around the house (laundry, for instance), work, etc. I’ll be blog visiting again as soon as possible this weekend and I hope your weekend is a blessed one.

  1. Oh-Noku! And funny tu!
    By the way I want to watermark or sign and copyright my photos. What do you use. I like the way you move it around. Thanks.

    An illustrated Noku, nice !

  3. Inshallah, this is not a poem your husband penned for you. Just wondering?!

  5. T hope your heart, and you,
    are warmer
    than this picture.

    Noku — what a brilliant idea! I love Haiku, but feel intimidated by the rules, so I never tried. Now I can try, and thank you to you and your husband!
    Have a great day.

  7. Allan G. Smorra says:

    Welcome back, Janet, and thanks for this lovely image & noku (I love the term).

    Welcome back, Janet. Love the picture and the Noku.

    Noku – I like it. And welcome back to the cold!

    • 🙂 Thanks, A-C. While much colder than Arizona, the temperature today is an almost balmy 48 F, although it will get colder over the next few days. I rather like winter, so I don’t mind.

  11. Dan Antion says:

    Welcome back to the cold, Janet.

  12. Su Leslie says:

    Love your image and words. I hope your noku isn’t about anyone in your life.

    The little “bite”in your words was a twist – and a good one, Janet.
    Sometimes it just is what it is…
    and I like the term your hubs came up with – which also shows how words and poems need to adapt roll with society changes and needs =it is how it grows and expands, eh?

    frigid feelings. Artistic presentation

    Lovely shot, Janet. I like the “Noku” too!
