Hatred – A Hay(na)ku

Hatred
infiltrates hearts
darkens their lives

Hatred is a string feeling indeed but unlike its lighter counterpart love, it is much more darker. Hatred destroys more of you than the person (or even an object!) towards whom it is directed. But still, we are humans after all and it is extremely unlikely that we would go about with our lives without hating a single person (or even a thing!)

This Hay(na)ku on hate was written in response to the August Scavenger Hunt challenge hosted by Val at A Different Perspective. Val has given us 13 prompts lots of short forms of poetry to complete by August 31st. To know more about this challenge, click here.

Hay(na)ku is a very simple poetic form, and it’s also one of the newest. It was apparently created in 2003 by poet Eileen Tabios.

Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third. There are no restrictions beyond this. For more info about this form of poetry, click here.

This post is a part of the ‘Blogchatter Half Marathon’ campaign.
