haikaiTALKS: ONE-LINE HAIKU - a saturday gathering_under the banyan tree

Dear poets,

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?

  1. How does a poet decide between a monoku, duostich, tercet, or may be even a four-line verse?

  2. Does a seasonal reference enhance or distract from the one-liner?

  3. Is syllable count part of a one-liner?

  4. What is gendai?

  5. 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.

Meanwhile, questions, discussions, and sharing of poems continue with an ever-widening space for contemplation, understanding, and joy. Please let me know how a poem becomes your personal favourite.
