    Oh....tis sweet bliss to hear the giggles of children...I will need a second account to store all my favorite haiku. Just visited Elizabeth's first haiku and she and I are in the same boat. New to this more serious type, challenged, and amazed. There was a lot of buzz yesterday amongst poets trying to write for your contest. I love the challenge and was blessed with help from fellow poets also trying....thanks, Charles. Gwendolen

    charles, I know all the definitions of haiku and senryu. I used to read really professional magazines and there are more than one accepted ways to do them. But the "feel" of them, once you learn it, you can always feel when a poet is really doing one or not. I'm not saying I am good at writing them, but I am good at "knowing" them. If that makes any sense! well, it was nice chatting. Goodnight now!

    yes, you will note in this one the cut is in line 1 and lines 2 and 3 link together grammatically and by subject. and they both refer back or enhance what was said in line 1. OR you can write it so the first two lines link together in a phrase and put your cut after the 2 and then have your second part be the line 3. Just two different way to form it.

    Hi Charles, I like reading your haiku poems, short and sweet with nice message. PS. I've seen remarks elsewhere from this jakiz and they are all the same. Wonder what it is doing here.
