😛 Playing catch up after
🤓 Editing all yesterday
🏝 I need a holiday

😂 The fun has just begun

👩 Rupunzel’s time to play

🌑 Pain’s dark road travelled
📖 Women’s wounds deep hidden penned
🗣 Many voices speak

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.

Spotlight Poetry – Anthology Update – Just Three Lines – A Collection of Small Poems by Goff James

The image depicts a book cover design titled Just Three Lines by the poet and author Goff James. The work is a monochromatic illustration of a plain red curtain cascading downwards on a black background. The lettering is in a bold white font.

The poems are individually numbered; but, there is in no particular order of theme.

I continue to be drawn to the idea of self-publishing the anthology and releasing it as a free download document or to publish it in instalments.

Spotlight Poetry – Anthology Update

I continue working on my first book of haiku / senryū poems. Rewriting, drafting and redrafting the manuscript has now been largely completed.

The front cover and end cover designs, the title and subtitles, the lead-in information details and introduction have been decided upon and in place.

The two hundred poems have been written, reread and redrafted; and, I am now in the process of a series of final run-throughs.

Here are a few tasters.

The image shows a red and black book cover design for an anthology of poetry The title remains a secret but the sub-titles read; A random collection of small poems; Goff James; Volume 1.

The poems are individually numbered; but, there is in no particular order of theme.

I continue to be drawn to the idea of self-publishing and releasing it as a download document or to publish it in instalments. This aspect continues to remain ‘up in the air’ at the moment.
