Thank you so much for your active participation.
Summarizing the key questions asked so far:
How does one differentiate between a prose sentence and a one-line ku?
How does a poet decide between a monoku, duostich, tercet, or may be even a four-line verse?
Does a seasonal reference enhance or distract from the one-liner?
Is syllable count part of a one-liner?
What is gendai?
How do we decide where to end or finalize the one-line haiku?
It's time to start introducing poems by one-line haiku poets from all over the world. This week, I would like to share three poems by Dietmar Tauchner.
