Publisher’s Note:

The poetic form “hay(na)ku,” a name coined by Vince Gotera and pronounced “ai-na-ku,” was invented in 2003 by poet Eileen Tabios, although she initially called it “the Pinoy Haiku.” To learn more, see Hay(na)ku at her website, which also includes numerous links to additional resources.
