Once Again, the Haiku
Let us speak again of the mere haiku,
always three lines, five-seven-five,
present tense mandated, minimalist view.
An unrhymed slice of life,
perhaps a pivotal point of view
between lines two and three, with epiphany.
Some think any hybrid form will do,
others say a focus on nature must thrive,
but if one uses humor, it becomes senryu.
