Welcome to the Surreal,

Fantastical, Weird and Wacky World of Emojiku

When Life Feels BLAH by Yvette @ Priorhouse and Goff James

😣 When life feels BLAH
⚒ And if it feels like ya hit a wall

🌹 Pause to smell the roses
🕺🏼 Move and make silly poses

☀️ Get some sun
🙏 Pray and have fun

✍️ Let writing offer reprieve
🖥 And with blogging friends – do feed!

🖼 See the bigger view real fast
🕰 Because this too, shall pass

🌃 Step light-footed through the dark
🎺 Hear tomorrow’s clarion call

🌅 A new day begins
☹️ Yesterday’s tribulations overcome

⛵️ Fresh horizons sailed
🏝 Boundless shorelines trod

🌟 Dreams unfulfilled awake
🔥 Hope rekindled burns

🌸 Life renewed a stirring blooms
🕊 Dawn’s sweet breath whispers peace

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. However there are no strict restrictive set rules. The format is open and fluid.

In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of at least 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.
