On Haiku And And And
Last night's post was actually, mostly, from way earlier in the week. But I wanted to post it and didn't feel like editing it.
Not sure what to write or where...
I recently bought a book called Haiku in English: The First hundred Years. I bought it because it is a haiku collection, and more-so, as they were counting on, because it has Billy Collins' name on the cover (because he wrote a short intro).
"The stop-time instant at the heart of haiku might be said to offer resistance to the remorseless powers of forgetfulness."
Sometimes I write those kind of capturing a moment haiku. Often I just try to write anything that works within the 5-7-5 system. i know the modern American haiku people don't like that. But I disagree. I say that myriad third grade English teachers can't be wrong.
is the crux of my haiku
