Just four days left now – we’re almost to the finish line.

Our featured participant today is EmmaJewel, where the persona poem for Day 26 is also a calligramme!

Today, our featured resource is the Academy of American Poets’ postcard archive, where you’ll find advice to young poets and some oddball summer ephemera, all written in postcard form.

And today’s prompt – optional, as always — comes to us from Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem. For example, you could write a hay(na)ku sonnet, like the one that Vince himself wrote back during NaPoWriMo 2012!

Happy writing!
