@Lisa - the haiku is in the post... or maybe you were asking about a post with all links, in that case, you should find it at Aaron's blog. Since mine attempts to be more closely in harmony with Japanese tradition, I doubt it would be the most popular in the US.

@Aaron - I read poetry in many languages. With the exception of one job where I know I was hired specifically because of my ability to see nuanced information, as you put so well here, it doesn't usually come up in conversation ;) Thank you for including me in the project.

@Jay - chalk it up to my degree in linguistics. At one point, I worked with a whole team from Japan and truly appreciate the culture. I enjoyed learning more about the form for my own education.

Holy mackrel. I just wrote something funny, and you come up with a whole class on haiku structure. Damn. Valeria, your overachieving ways shame me.

Valeria - very interesting. Other than knowing that the haiku was Japanese in origin and (so I thought) was a rigid 5/7/5 syllables, I had no idea about some of the other nuance that you covered in your post.

Also, really appreciate your participating in this. So far, the response has been great. ;)
