🙏 Faith’s love constructed
🤸🏼‍♂️ Leaping into the unknown
⛩ Bridge the traps that bind
🙏 Donned in belief’s robes
🤸🏼‍♂️ Tumbling o’er heaven’s highway
⛩ Seeking truth’s winged span

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.

Choppy Seas An Emojiku Poem

by Suzette Benjamin and Goff James

🌊 Choppy seas banter
⛵️ Seething passions navigate
🐠 Swimming schools of thought
🌊 Dreams’ waves moonlit sing
⛵️ Dawn’s sails skim the horizon
🐠 Flying fishes dance
