Divine rhapsody

Of music
Floated in air.

Eyes, heart,
Impatience they bear.

His flute,
Calling his love.

Ceaselessly calling
To Yamuna’s bank.

Yamuna’s bank,
Kanha’s flute wooed.

And Krishna,
In lover’s rendezvous.

Radha stood,
Leaning on Murari.

Then reverberated,
With Love’s rhapsody.

The Hay(na)ku poem, a very simple poetic form and 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. Multiple hay(na)ku or “sequence” can be chained together to form longer poems.  It was created by poet Eileen Tabios with its debut in the Philippine Independence Day, June 12, in 2003.
