Good afternoon poets. I have been down with the "Pain In The Ass Computer Blues" the last couple of weeks and am enjoying catching up on communications.
This is just a reminder for those who are not aware. Haiku is a very structured form of Japanese poetry that follows a five syllable, then seven syllable, then ends with five syllables for a total of seventeen. The subject matter traditionally is nature. If you finish one start a new one. ___________________________________________________________

I always enjoyed a chained haiku, but when I introduced it to a poetry group thousands of years ago around age 15, they all thought it was an 'odd and interesting' novelty. Hope it isn't so original anymore...
