    Thank you, Hanitra for your comments. I guess I'm hooked on the " _ku" I 've been writing haikus since 1999. I just started writing questionkus. I honestly love this form of writing. Thanks again and have a happy new year.

    Hi Hanitra Thanks to your suggestion the Questionku is an official form on the soup.

    And now the summer's faded and springtime finally grieves. There's nothing left for us to do but watch as autumn leaves. Beautiful poem Hanitra.

    No worries from me, rules are made to be bent, I am more interested in the emotions you have captured. Thanks as well for the advertisement, I would be thrilled if others gave it a try.

    Ahh! Originality! I love your "QuestionKu"! It tastes like Free verse to me! Very nice, Voahanitriniaina! May I call you Voaha? LOL! Ruben.

    OOps! In fact, I forgot to say that this Questionku is a false one, because I couldn't resist the temptation and went on adding new verses. So, it's Questionku + something else, hence the "I do not know?"-form... I hope Richard won't be too severe about it. I'll do better next time. For the time being, I'll trust a very talented poet and theoricist, Ruben, and change the 'I do not know?" into the "Free verse" you are proposing. Thank you so much for your big help! :) Blessings, Hanitra

    If you like this new form, Ruben, check it out at Richard Lamoureux's place: he invented it and gave the rules: 3 lines:4-5-6; ending with a question. Just try it: the rhythm is very pleasant! Blessings, Hanitra
