“What” is Making a Haiku
So what if a haiku looks tattered, crusty, a bit jangly. I mean well-worn word play, but well made poem.
When I make a haiku I am scribbling, it is a poem in the present, likely written on available materials, immediate, now, in a process that varies.
I edit all the time. I revise. I do drafts.
I do not imagine how any recipient will like or un-like or ignore my poem, that is not my concern, not being rude.
Writing haiku either achieves the “keeper list” or it does not. My fifty are no way equal to my one good haiku.
What is good? The next one I complete. If not, the one after it.
The poem will be as good as I make it, not only because someone approved it. I intend to do a well made haiku.
Always be composing.
