THE TONGUE CAN DO SO MUCH HARM

I tend to agree with Utha, but there is nothing wrong with a 3-line thought in a moment in a day. Perhaps more in the tradition of an analect, but thank you Chairman Mao. Words are cheap and thoughts are deep.

A very nice poem in the Haiku form of lines and syllables, however there is more to a Haiku than meets the eye.

A Haiku is a strict form of Japanese poetry consisting of three lines of  five syllables, seven syllables and five syllables each, and should, in the traditional format contain a mention of the seasons. However here in the West, poets either disregard these century old traditions, or are unaware of them. I see this over and over again here on Blogit and I don't know if it is a matter of disrespect of the tradition, or a lack of understanding of the true form. I am not saying this as a disrespect to you, or your poem, (which I find a wonderful and powerful statement), but as an education of the true art form, which in Japan is an art that takes years of discipline and practice to master, much like their many forms of martial art for self defence, and they even special schools where the form is taught. I hope this will be helpful to you.
