...so like,  when like, the haiku or any of its three-two-one-four line siblings is lending voice to like a chipmunk, how does the poet make it clear that the speaker is the bird or animal in the haiku that does the talking?

Like for instance, if a frog does some speaking and that happens to be the haiku, or the speaker in the haiku is a frog,  how does the poet show that?

When reading a book on modern and post modern takes on poetry, I came across the thought ( am paraphrasing it):  Male benevolence afforded to women, is also a form of authority.

Well, there are tomes that can be written on that one liner,  but the question(s) it triggered is this:

Are there any feminist poets in haiku?  What has the haiku tradition been like esp. when taking the feminist wave(s) into consideration?

I ask, because the Japanese culture too, like most Asian cultures did allow for women voices, though there were not that many voices to be heard...

Hello All,

my grammar Ninjas will frown at the grammar sleight, but then I think I can invoke the poetic licence and refer to the uppercase A as a matter of reverence.


Being here is an education. I am learning to write haiku.
Which is why I wish to learn more about the origins of haiku and the timeline, the evolution and the progress made over the years.


Let us have a discussion about the historical influence on the evolution of haiku and also
the history of haiku and other oriental forms of poetry.

Thank you
