Maki-nyan's Tsubuyaki

ByMaki Starfield

Tsubuyaki is a freestyle verse, in Japanese, English or any other language, stemmed from the Japanese haiku.

 Tsubuyaki verses are free from the traditional and conventional rules and norms that are set for haiku, which distinctly has rigid 5-7-5 syllable lines with references to seasons.

 By definition the word “tsubuyaki” in Japanese means “a murmur,” “a mutter” or “muttering” —- “talking to oneself.” 

So in writing a tsubuyaki verse you simply write down whatever comes to your mind at a certain moment, describing how you feel —- honest and truthful —- choosing most suitable and appropriate words and phrases, usually in three lines, to express your inner thoughts without being overly concerned of the conventional format and style.

You may make your own rules, then feel free to bend them or break them as you see fit to express yourself.
