The Spectrum of Haiku & Senryu

There are some difficult questions in the universe. One of them is sometimes "Is this poem a haiku or a senryu?"

Despite clear intended differences in the form it can sometimes seem impossible to nail down.

The answer perhaps is that there is a spectrum of haiku and senryu. In this course we'll write intentionally at both ends of the spectrum, and at points along it, with an awareness of where we are between the genres.
