Welcome to the Surreal,

Fantastical, Weird and Wacky World of Emojiku

When Life Feels BLAH by Yvette @ Priorhouse and Goff James

๐Ÿ˜ฃ When life feels BLAH
โš’ And if it feels like ya hit a wall

๐ŸŒน Pause to smell the roses
๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿผ Move and make silly poses

โ˜€๏ธ Get some sun
๐Ÿ™ Pray and have fun

โœ๏ธ Let writing offer reprieve
๐Ÿ–ฅ And with blogging friends โ€“ do feed!

๐Ÿ–ผ See the bigger view real fast
๐Ÿ•ฐ Because this too, shall pass

๐ŸŒƒ Step light-footed through the dark
๐ŸŽบ Hear tomorrowโ€™s clarion call

๐ŸŒ… A new day begins
โ˜น๏ธ Yesterdayโ€™s tribulations overcome

โ›ต๏ธ Fresh horizons sailed
๐Ÿ Boundless shorelines trod

๐ŸŒŸ Dreams unfulfilled awake
๐Ÿ”ฅ Hope rekindled burns

๐ŸŒธ Life renewed a stirring blooms
๐Ÿ•Š Dawnโ€™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 / senryลซ 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.
