I'm not familiar with the "haiku" technique, but I like its flow and simplicity... I'm gonna hafta study up~ So what Ralphie Waldo was saying was... If a man lives a spiritually upright life, he is automatically content? I know I'm much more content when I'm not vandalizing churches, or teasing about their habits... er...um... yeah...thats it.
OK, call it a Tiffryu! Who cares? Nice and thought provoking, as all good haikus should be (I really must catch up with this Emerson dude (sheltered upbringing) LOL Very Nice, Stella, very nice Be Happy Graeme
I like this little poem Tiff and because it speaks truth...Emerson was wise and I too wonder about if he called it a haiku lol or a senyru? You see Tiff when people see haiku they automatically count 5-7-5 and is this about nature nope its closer to senyru and when will your critques like myself learn you "frankly don't give a damn" lol...IT is the messege that you want us so much to benefit from and with this little except I benefited Tiff so thanks for submitting it. `always write poetry, Cheryl.
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, that "haiku" is missing a syllable in the second line...any clue as to why? it's definitely an interesting idea though, except that a "law" and a "tendency" are 2 very very different things.
hmmm...very thought provoking. A man that can detect his tendencies that challenge his spirituality and becomes content when he is able to choose which tendencies can bring him that contentment. Thats just what I got out of this O'wise Ballarina... Nice post. Have a great one and keep smilin'
