Thanks for the heads up. Is this a gentle hint that I should submit some haiku there? Some of it's really good!

-- Tricia the Canuck (, September 26, 2002.

Well, haiku submitted. Now we wait to see if they publish it.

It has been so long

Since "Der Unkl" has haikued

Does he need practice?

-- Uncle Deedah (, October 03, 2002.

Do my eyes deceive?
Blinking, mouth hanging open.
Is that really Unk?

-- Gayla (, October 03, 2002.

And no, you don't need practice. You did good! :-)

-- Gayla (, October 04, 2002.

The master arrives.

I bow my head with respect,

Warmly welcome him.

Clearly practice is needed

So far unpublished :-(

Is haiku around here limited to the 5-7-5 format? I thought that contemporary english haiku had no such constraint. I like the idea that the haiku should be about 8-12 syllables total; ie, it should take as long to read as did the "haiku moment" of recognition (the moment of "ah-ness"). Three lines seem to still be in fashion.

High-koo around here is 5-7-5, but Low-koo may be in any format you please. And welcome.

Helen, thanks. I'll just watch FRL for a while and see what youse guys is up to. I didn't realize any Greenspun forums were still alive.

I went thru a lowku phase in 1989. 90 and 91. It was a passion for a time, then fizzled. I had a couple published in the haiku periodical Frogpond and 3 more in a book, Anthology of Midwestern Haiku.

Then I lost the muse; even came to think of haiku as "the world's most trivial art form".

Golden maple leaves
fall like drifts of moving snow
all over my yard.

We need some guv help,
even Deedah would agree,
make leaves a cash crop.

Crop with price supports,
with biomass incentives.
Now that would be fair!

The discipline, Lars,
Of haichu (Bless you!) to you
Trains the mind to sneeze.
