Haiku

horedsofhell I love haiku. I sometime do a scrapbook page with one of my favourite haiku in order to have them ALL turned into a poetry album one day.

Here are some great haiku pages.

First some of the traditional stuff:
Haiku of Issa
Haiku of Shiki
Haiku of Basho
Here you can see the differences in translations depending on the translator. Interesting! I prefer R.H. Blyth’s interpretation in every case. Of course I have no idea about the original they were interpreting.

Computer haiku
Microsoft error messages would be so much nicer to read if they came in that format.

Erotic haiku:
Nerve haiku, part II
Haiku by Nerve staff members

A review of "True Blood" in haiku form:
True Blood
