Day Ten & Friendly Friday nightime

With a push that being featured among 630 or so participants brings along, here are twelve little poems of six words, each with a night-time image.















Prompt 10: “It’s the hay(na)ku … 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.”

First time I hear of it but the concept sounded catchy immediately. I felt a bit mexcessive after being the featured participant today. Thank you so much! Not a little thing to be featured out of so many. I’m especially glad that you liked my door poem.

So here are 12 hay(na)kus, or as I’m going to call them, hey(not)cool, each with a night-time image, since this post is also for the Friendly Friday photo challenge and Amanda chose nightime as her theme. Now I’m wondering if this actually means nigh time. Hmmm. Well, in some images the night is not yet here but nigh.

While all the other photos are from around my home in Tuscany, one is from Rome, one from Orbetello which is now too far for our grocery shopping, and the last one is of my parents’ home in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where I did my growing up.

One third done, two thirds to go. Of April and poems. Thank you for reading, always.

For Day 10 of NaPoWriMo 2020


for Friendly Friday Photo Challenge hosted by Amanda from Something to Ponder About: Nightime

  1. I love this photos – I can feel all the different moods of night-time, from beginning to middle. The one with the lamp was quite clever! And I did a tinge of pink in the one!

  2. There are so many variations of poetry… You wear them all so effortlessly. Love the photos and words about the various shades of celestial light. Hope you are well, dear Manja. I have wondered how you are doing over there.💕
