A TUESDAY FEATURE

Any purist might say that speculative topics should not enter the realm of haiku. For a bit lets
step outside of the realm, and see where our creativity can take us with the basic tenets of the
haiku form. Using the kire, the juxtaposition of two ideas (instead of observations). Within the
confines of speculative poetry lies the idea of this form exploring science fiction and fantasy
(SFF), horror etc.
This week how about stepping into the realm of SFF or horror and writing poems within the
tenets of haiku, again without the explicit usage of cliche.
