      I’m less angry with myself so much as disappointed

    You wouldn’t have time to read any others anyway, We can all see you are probably working on your own posts nearly 24/7.

      24 seconds roughly every seven days is about right yes.

      I never read any of the comments. I always reply out of courtesy but if the reply matches the comment then it’s more by luck than judgment

    If Basho had a blog, I’d read it.

      I’d give it a go but I’d need help with the Japanese

        I found a great book once that had his haikus in English, the Roman spellings of the Japanese, the kanji to write it and the hirogana to look it up…

    I only do it because it doesn’t require much effort.

    I always have kids read poetry to the class for a public speaking grade. The presentation is to run 4 to 6 minutes. Years ago, a junior high student did a presentation entirely made up of haikus. The audience was mystified for minutes on end, and I sensed the presenter regretted the dreadful choice after having read about 4 haikus. I still laugh when I think about it.

      That’s why my posts are never more than one haiku

        Superb judgement, James. I could sense that’s why you limited it to one.

      They tend to wither and die seen outside the written element; They blur into syllableness.

        That’s exactly right. They just kind of flop on the ground once verbalized.

    Laugh at yourself daily. Enjoy your life
