We, I included, are getting far afield from traditional Japanese haiku, which is a word picture without a moral.

Haiku is about nature; senryu is about human emotions. We are doing senryu here. One of the best nature poems I've read, which would have made a good haiku, was my mentor's definition of a squirrel--"An undulating urgency in fur". At the expense of diluting that good line, I'd add
An undulating
Urgency in fur, fast leaps
Onto support branch.
But, I'm off the tag lines here.

Then, in that case, I prefer senryu... I'm not inclined to poeticise over nature as much as I am over emotion.

Just noting that not all 5/7/5s are haikus. The Japanese are more sticklers for exact definitions than we Westerners are. But then we are laboring under the burden of Western traditions in poetry and thought.

"While being yourself" was the last recognizable line. Sorry, Orb, but I don't understand your verse and cannot figure out how to tag "Matter those you love". Maybe it's just me.

I*'ll continue on here...

Matter those you love
Those too matter ~~ whom you hate
But apathy - more.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."


"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."


“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Immanuel Kant
