Posted:Chloe- Haiku uses the 757 format, but also has many other rules. First, it must be natural, leaving spam and poi out of the running for subjects. Second there must be a juxtaposition of two things in the poem, Im too lazy to come up with an example of this. The list goes on. If it just has the 575 format, thenit's called Senryu. But, since the rules can't really be applied to english poems, have at it.-PSM

One can only see what one observes, and one observes only things which are already in the mind.-Alphonse Bertillon

Posted:Mine could be translated as:It's evening timea group gathers togetherto frolick with fire(with a little poetic license, to preserve the 575 structure). There's a local group that gets together Thursdays for fire practice, and that's what I was thinking about when I wrote it.------------------Adam Rice :: www.fire-gear.com

two more general rules of haiku are: 1 season word, 1 cutting word as in something describing a season, and something that kind of stops the line of thought and takes it in another direction (didn't do that too well).
