Hi Lorraine,

We got a lovely comment from you on the Blo͞o blog!

And an incredible one privately! We are so blown away, both by your comments, and your haibun, we'll have to answer tomorrow. Thank you!!!!!!

And thank you for leaving this comment as well. So much work went into this issue, and I've been editor on many journals in the past, but never to this degree. Thought and care had to be done to showcase the work.

Thank you for all of your haibun, it's been a privilege, and an honor.

Alan






hi Alan and Karen,

i tried to leave a comment with Issue 2. not sure if it took. i hate my interaction with google drive 😶

so. . . the gist of my very short comment (yes, it occasionally happens—🙃):::each individual page as well as each poet’s individual work has such a wonderfully intimacy about it. it’s going to be a slow read, for that very reason. no skimming. no browsing through. each haibun deserves and will get a thoughtful read.

i’ve never read pieces like these. the journal is a delight. thank you for all the hard work that went into its publication this issue.

In-Depth Haiku: Free Discussion Area / a question about repetition in haiku
« Last post by Lorraine Pester on August 01, 2021, 08:11:33 PM »

several weeks ago, alan gave a link to the virtual meetings of the haiku society of north america (probably got that name wrong) who videoed their annual meeting that was held back in june, 2021. the question i have involves repetition in haiku.

specifically, where the first word of the haiku is also the last. now. . .some of you know me by now, well enough to know that i didn’t use the formula exactly

the monostich that i wrote was:::

lingering lavender scent silk lingerie

does the similarity of lingering / lingerie come across as i intended as a use of repetition? to me, this is kin to near rhyme / off rhyme in longer poetry forms.

i presented it as a haiga for submission, complete with calligraphically spaced text on my photo. although my other two were liked, this one was passed on.

so. . .all that aside, does this monostich work or not the way i originally thought of it?
