🙏 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.

The theme for National Poetry Month 2022 is There’s A Poem in This Place. Two places to find contemporary poetry at its most vibrant are in the blogging community and at live readings. On 23 April 2022 from 4-5:30 PM ET, the two places come together when a select group of poets from the blogosphere present a live reading of their poetry at Poets in the Blogosphere. Most poetry is meant to be read aloud, and hearing poets read their own work is a heightened experience. The event is moderated by Elizabeth Gauffreau. #NationalPoetryMonth #blogpoetsread2022

A Small Flame

She walked in,
lit a small candle
then she left
and we watched
as the light grew still stronger
lighting freedom’s path.

–Lou Faber

Una llamita
Ella entró
encendió vela
y salió
vimos como
creció, alumbrando la
ruta de libertad
–Lou Faber (traducción por Rebecca)



Flowing out of me,
sometimes bright,
sometimes dark,
Always taking over me,
Becoming my home.
