    It isn't listed
    This isn't a beer thread, though;
    Haiku only, please

    Have I missed something here then? Or are we talking in riddles?

    Looks like a beer thread to me.

    Are you Japanese? If so you should not have tried to mislead!

    Anyone interested in learning more about Haiku should look up the great writers like Basho, Issa and Buson, and on the look-out for modern writers in English, too. Keep in mind that "More than inspiration, it needs meditation, effort and mainly perception to compose a real Haiku". (Rodrigo de Siquiera)

    Is this you alchol?

    they are hard to write
    because they limit your words
    with the syllables
    :D

    Dave, I should never
    Have called you a nitwit but
    You are so obtuse!

    Dave, I said "haiku"
    But you thought I said "saki"
    You got them mixed up!

    Obtuse is not a word I would have used (as it is the same as nitwit). I am not stupid or intelligent or any ways in-between. I take things as they appear. When you write something it can contain many meanings not apparent to you at the time or writing. Things are more complex than this as the beholder of the writing will interpret it in their own way that’s why the very subject you talk about exists.

    five syllables first
    are followed by seven
    five more is haiku

    I didn't mean it
