    Journal: Haiku game.
    Mood: poetical
    I'm really Glen Bowman, but I want to post haiku separately here, because there's a game which (so I am reading in a life of Basho) Japanese poets play: one of a group makes a verse, then in turn, the others each make a verse to follow it. They are "linked" verses; but are not meant to make up one whole poem. Instead, they make up a sequence of verses that all have something to do with each other, one verse answering preceding ones, but not necessarily very directly. Well, each comment box here at lakesblue can be used for a linked haiku instead of a critique, if you like.

    Haikai no renga?
    What a wonderful idea! I love the Japanese traditions of using poetry as social and community tools of communication and commemoration.

    I briefly read about Basho on Wiki...and it seems he had a fascinating life, but never settled to a peace in his mind. It seems that all great poets have that uneasiness or unsettled vibe surrounding them and their lives.
    Perhaps great art comes most often from great struggles, both external and internal?
    Anyhow, great idea you have here.

    Ah well.
    It was worth a try, Glen.
    On behalf of a misunderstood and under-appreciated form,
    thanks for the effort.

    i loved your thoughts on the sincerity of people and those old rickety god guys at your door step in 40 degree weather.

    (we should both post more)
    hah its funny you say that. i have been writing a lot lately, but ive been mostly journaling, a few poems here and there. ah but life has been so crazy, its awesome, like every day is an adventure and i come home with four stories to tell and put into poems. its great. so ive been busy living life lately, if i get some rest and time to do nothing for a few hours i will sit and try to make this craziness into art. hah.

    in the mean time however, i will read your poems.
