February has been designated (at least by haiku poets) as National Haiku Writing Month. This is an appropriate match since February is the shortest month of the year and haiku is the shortest genre of poetry. Therefore I will be writing, as will many others – one haiku/senryu each day. I will be posting mine here while other haijin post on the Facebook page for sharing: NaHaiWriMo.
I will not be paying as much attention to a specific syllable count as much as writing as short a story as possible in as few words as necessary to make the story sing – a mix of traditional haiku and contemporary ku. Wow, I just used the word “as” six times in the same sentence!
