Dragonflies can’t have a rest

    Beautiful, and whitty! I wonder, do you compose these in Japanese and transcribe into English? My apologies if that’s a stupid question!

    • AshiAkira says:

      I’m often asked the same question. The answer is I never write haikus in Japanese because of the difficult (to me nonsense) rules like season word. I believe the poetry should not have any rules which are tantamount to the straitjacket for poets. I only follow the forms of poems like the 5-7-5 syllables (rhythm) for haiku, which makes it short and handy. I always appreciate your reading of my haikus. Thank you.

        Well, what you do works. The words are so lovely, or funny, or sharp – you seem to be able to capture a feeling with so few. Thank you for taking the time to educate a very naive Vermonter.
