Daff(t) Haiku

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers … Kim is prompting at Carpe Diem and you will also find a fabulous essay there by her on Haiku and Tanka.

I would like the theme to be ‘the poet’s craft’, in which Carpe Diem’s poets express what they think it is, reflecting on their own experiences as haiku and tanka poets.”

So your responses on this beautiful essay by Kim is themed “The Poet’s Craft” reflect on your own experiences as haiku and tanka poets.

    Dude. That is nasty-hot. Flowers, takin’ a knee, so to speak.

    In all seriousness, there is some Daft Punk, Daffy Duck, deftness, AND taffy in your title. So I am all over this tiny bit(e) of yum.


    Oh, and banana. That’s my favorite flavor … in case you were wonderin’.

      Thanks. I enjoyed the essay and congrats on the Haiku comp. This prompt gave me something to chew on…all the Haiku I have written have been ‘classic’ form I guess. (I’m learning still) Cutting word, seasonal word etc….your examples in the essay later did not seem to have those.( but i could be wrong) Is this a different kind of Haiku?
