Spotlight Poetry Fun Time – Please Pop the Bubbly – An Emojiku Poem by Cindy Georgakas and Goff James

🗣 Emoji loud voiced celebrate

🙂 Till the sun goes down

What is emojiku?

The emojiku came about by Cindy Georgakas and Goff playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.

An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryū or haiga.

In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.

The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.

The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.

      • Wow your no rookie at this game. Brilliant writes. Two stunning emojiku. I’ll deal with the first one . Here’s my first response;
        🌞 Noontide dazzling beams
        ⛵️ Adrift on the ocean waves
        🐝 The breeze a buzz stings
        Here’s my second response;
        🌞 Sun filled sails unfurled
        ⛵️ Racing o’er the briny deep
        🐝 Busy bees delight

        I’ll now get two posts ready. Watch out for them. They”ll be coming to a blog near you soon. Happy Emojiku Fun Day. Share and pass on the challenge if you wish. It really is fun, My Friend. Many thanks.
