    Hi Joe, I researched Noritake, the patterns, the influence, the historical significance of the changes in designs....I got no clue as to what you are looking for in this contest...I could just write about beautiful China but it is probably NOT what you are looking for...these hidden meanings are very HIDDEN to me...sorry Joe...I am not as sophisticated as the rest of these guys. Love, Gwendolen

    With a syllable count of 6-7-7 this is more like a katuaka. Which form do you want in y our contest? 5-7-5 or 5-7-7 or 6-7-7?

    Awesome images here, Joe. I like the way you describe the moon as "reflective" with a copper chablis blossom. I have all sorts of thoughts running through my head reading this. I will see if I can work with these thoughts and produce some haiku. I have been too ill to be on the Soup the past few days. Doing a little better today. Love, Carolyn

    Hey, the third line correct or you missed the "s" in "tastes"?

  1. Date: 5/6/2012 6:43:00 PM
    yup totally nonsensicle ..not a haiku...noritake is tableware? tableware writing a tribute to rice wine? shadows don't reflect a solid CASTES a shadow...the moon does reflect the light of the sun..copper tastes YUCKY! ever sucked a penny? LOL actually BLOOD tastes like copper? rose? not sure what you are doing Joe unless it's a puzzle?

    Thanks for your comment Debbie,, i just hoped to get some great poems which i am sure i will." I like the way you think on this.." but you need to break out of such a confined approach.." and to be fair i think you could..! whether or not you realise you touch close to the aspects that are there..!

    hmm...."[...] copper chablis"? ...not bronze Chablis? The third line puzzles me ... and my dirty mind doesnt help! LOL! I'll try to write a haiku for your contest but do not ask me about my interpretation! LOL! Have a nice day. Ruben.

    is this the one you refer to in your blog? Sorry, I am really bad with puzzles, JOe. You should let them know in the blog where LOL is. It's not on your first page. I'll go track it down if I can.

    Thanks for your expansion on the poem. Gives the verse so much more depth and I need to learn to grasp these deeper meanings. It all weaves together so beautifully.

    I shall try to expand this is a fun write on one level:) i e, sake being drunk from a china Noritake bowl theMade in Japan, i hope.!) the taste chablis/copper, also the bowl is concave invert..impassive the moon is a cresent also invert, the blossom is soft white, like the moon, the taste of sake blossoms...on tounge pink like blossom cherry..

    Thank you for your kind comment, Joe. Still waiting for the test results, but I'll let you know when I hear something. Thank you for caring! Love, Carolyn

    I can see the image of the "impassive moon" so well through your words. Wonder if we could sip from the moon and find a "copper chablis." Eloquently written, Joe. Love and blessings, Carolyn
