New to Haiku: Free Discussion Area / haiku...let's experiment?
« on: January 15, 2011, 12:23:16 PM »
Following Don's question about haiku and truth I thought it might be interesting to experiment with something to stimulate imagination and our subconcious, things can lie buried there just waitng to surface, sometimes things we hide even from ourselves....
also I wonder if this might spawn some surreal ku... I don't think I ever wrote one but it would be interesting to see what they look like...
  Fractal art galleries abound on the internet, here are a couple of links to start you off, i have used similar galleries before to stimulate ideas for other poetry but not for haiku.
Please post a link to the fractal art with your ku. Have fun everyone

is there such a category in haiku? Here's one I found reported on the bbc site today, actually it said
The UK, not britain.... i cheated a teensy bit  ::)

and another -

The Census Bureau

...tick tock...


The Census Bureau

thinking about both they work on multiple levels for me.

In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area / Taking time to absorb haiku fully
« on: December 18, 2010, 06:56:59 AM »
I am realising how valuable it is to slow down and take time to absorb all that another's haiku offers, reading again and again thoughtfully before jumping in with comments. My mind tends to work at speed, but slowing down, with practise I am hoping this will make my comments more in tune and relevant to the authors intentions, and the spin off is that I learn more about haiku in the process.

In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area / fibonacci ku
« on: December 14, 2010, 07:37:11 AM »
: traditional, contemporary and innovative Haiku. i would appreciate a really clear definition of these three please. I like to write fibonacci poems and it is possible to do a mini fibonacci ku in 17 syllables and fibonacci numbers
2 17 syllables

which of the three might this fit traditional as it could be seventeen syllables and have two parts fragment and body, even a season word, or would it fit in contemporary, or innovative ?
