    Re: Current Quiz Thread

    I love the haiku. I've always wanted to learn more (and write some satisfactory ones of my own) but just haven't got round to reading up on them yet ^^

    Re: Current Quiz Thread

    cmertb, you actually sound like me. I am not a poet, and I don't know how to make or understand haiku (俳句, wiki) or senryu (川柳, wiki) well.

    If haiku were to be expressed in a different art form, Blue II (a painting in blue with black dots and a red line) by Joan Miro would be a great one.

    Utsu, are there any equivalent expressions of haiku in music?

    @All
    Pop Quiz:
    Do you know the difference between haiku and senryu? Which one doesn't generally include a kigo (season word)?
