bright new dawn
My odd start was like getting up on the wrong side of bed. What a morning- smell coffee in my pants? I'm glad it was just a dream.

It really does matter, that coffee in the pants, sometimes it does turn into farts.

Who needs laxative when we've got coffee toots.

A M Guts 3/5/3 comment query
Auld's post-

Our mistakes
Tend to teach us more
Than our takes

reminds me of a poem in which an apparent prefix is eliminated to humorous effect-

example: inept - in = ept
mistake - mis = take

Would someone please flog my memory?

3/5/3 Serendipity...
I thought this might yield a story to which we might each add a chapter, but it became something better (thanks to the creative imaginations of imaginative members) than I had hoped for or imagined- a playground for grown-ups (more or less). I love it!

'fraid I'm throwing that one open to the floor... but now you mention it, it reminds me of something I read before too... and there was me thinking I was being stunningly original... just goes to show... that's going to bug me now...

Begone, lest a house fall upon you as well
Shouting out
avails you nothing
potty mouth

Jared's excellent question!
Jared's question raises the larger question- What is haiku? Little if any has been committed on the thread related to this comment thread- but that's OK as I made clear at the outset. I defer to the following:

Londongrey's post on the subject and particularly the links he has provided. I have taken the liberty of re-posting his text here, plus a link to his original article:

links to Londongrey's original informative article.

A note on HAIKU by Londongrey

There are alot of hicoos (thanks Teflon) floating around, and everyone is asking the same questions, so here is library of very good sites that tell you all about it, fomr its history to its modern inceptions, perversions and general 'not really poetry in any way' forms.

I've written on it before but if your interested check these out. They really do help:

These have been an invaluable source of information so I think everyone who enjoys the Haiku form will like them too.

Alex :-)

Ask not what you can do to poetry, but what poetry can do to you.

This article by Londongrey inspired my episodic fiction "Doggerel Show", which is more entertaining than instructive.

more about me and mine
I must also thank gomarsoap and others for defining and challenging our concept of the nature of haiku, thereby inspiring my ten part fictional fantasy comparing differing types of poetry to different breeds of dogs as well as examining how we define these differences and/or ignore them. I can thank/blame only myself for utilizing this opportunity to plug my episodic fiction "Doggerel Show".
