@edgarblythe,
Let's stop to think about what we are doing here.

We are defacing an ancient Japanese art form. Haiku was an important part of Japanese culture that symbolized class and quiet meditation.

Quote:
"Basho's mature haiku style, Shofu, is known not only for karumi, but also for two other Zen-inspired aesthetic ideals: sabi and wabi. Sabi implies contented solitariness, and in Zen is associated with early monastic experience, when a high degree of detachment is cultivated. Wabi can be described as the spirit of poverty, an appreciation of the commonplace, and is perhaps most fully achieved in the tea ceremony, which, from the simple utensils used in the preparation of the tea to the very structure of the tea hut, honours the humble."


I am ashamed of my participation in this thread. I was trying to be cute... my intention was clever humor. I failed. This just gets more and more nasty. It is the complete opposite of what I believe haiku was supposed to be about.

I apologize for my part in this thread. I won't be posting any more here.

@maxdancona,
Don't try to take away what the thread is. It has already been noted what these lines are and what they are not. It's the oldest trick in the book to change the topic to squash other voices. Screw off troll.

Let's all be kinder
Don't make me come down there, 'cause
topic's just for fun

AKA when every single topic turns nasty, it's time to drink some spiked eggnog and maybe step away from the keyboard. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Rage against the wind,
