#26’s theme is “One-liners” and features the work of Matsuo Allard, Stuart Quine & Jeff Stillman.
What would be lost if the one-line haiku in #26 were rearranged in three lines? How does their composition in one line affect one’s reading & interpretation? How important is it to those writing haiku in English that Japanese haiku mostly are, and have always been, written as one line poems?
#27’s theme is “California Dreamin'” and features the work of Michael McClintock, D. Claire Gallagher & Jerry Ball.
For #27: How important is California, as a place and environment, to these haiku? Is it essential, a nice factoid, or somewhere in between?
