Haiku, Un-learning and Re-learning
I mean no disrespect. I do no intend unsupported criticism.
I offer three considerations relating to haiku.
First, Un-learn some lessons, early. Even sincere and motivated teachers are wrong. I especially note my self-teaching.
Next, consider the impact of several concepts relating to acceptable haiku, a brief list.
A. Knowing the Subject of haiku is the Way on a Path built upon insight and on discovery for writer and for recipient.
B. Haiku is a regulated, known, and an expected type of poem.
C. Haiku is versatile and demanding.
D. Humor is one of many human traits.
Then, with reflection, proceed with haiku, un-learned or re-learned. Or something else.
