I admire the haiku style. I've been tampering with it for a while, but I've never quite.. mm, I digress.
This is good.

That's pretty good.
I'm never been a big fan of Haiku's.
I don't know why though.
Oh well.

Beautiful! It's hard to find a truly good haiku, much less write one. I enjoy dabbling with haiku, but dang it's hard! Congrats on the DD! :clap:

But you deserve these, seriously. With Swinburne, Poe, Alliksaar and some others you're my favourite poet.

Sometimes short can be more descriptive than a whole essay. I think this is the epitome of a good haiku, and they were very wise choosing this for a DD. You have a very beautiful author's tag, too. :)

peterdawes Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2009  Professional Writer
why thank you! the tag is my homage to depeche mode. *chuckles* i am an avid fan.
i am just now starting to grasp the essence of what makes a good haiku. hopeful for more chances to experiment; these may be short, but they are far more difficult to pen than my typical free verse. so much to capture in so few words.
