 “That’s the problem with drinking, I thought, as I poured myself a drink. If something bad happens you drink in an attempt to forget; if something good happens you drink in order to celebrate; and if nothing happens you drink to make something happen.” [Bukowski ]


That’s the best i can do now;

Drinking in sunset

Thought i; of golden moments 

Poured into daydreams.

Drink bubbles of fantasy!

Forget tomorrows!

Celebrate your past tokens!

#NOTES:What Is a Kindku?The Kindku is an invitation to promote kindness, positivity and inspiration through poetry. As the last two letters of the name indicate, it is based on Japanese poetry forms like the haiku and tanka.

The RulesThe Kindku is a short poem of seven lines. The syllable pattern is 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 or 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5 / 7 / 5.

The Kindku must include seven words that are taken from one specific source — a poem, a book, a newspaper article, etc. In the case of a book or long piece of writing, those words must come from the same page. Words must be used in the order they were found. Their placement also depends on the line:

Line 1 starts with word 1. Line 2 ends with word 2. Line 3 starts with word 3. Line 4 ends with word. 4

Line 5 starts with word 5. Line 6 ends with word 6. Line 7 starts or ends with word 7.

Kindku poems can have titles and punctuation. No matter the topic covered, they must sport a positive tone. Kindku poets are encouraged to credit and link to the inspirations behind their pieces.

Poetics: Cheers!

CHALLENGE: Write about your favourite drink (alcoholic/non-alcoholic), write about getting drunk, use drinking as a metaphor, in short: write a poem in a form of your choice with a drinking connection.
