[!HAIKU]No, of course not. We'll never match the beauty and austerity of something like Basho's classic:
I can only speak for myself, but I've used the high-falutin' phrase shin-haiku to dignify my attempts to infuse this fine form with some decidedly gaijin concepts of rhyme, different meters, sentence sturcture, etc.
We do it for fun, we do it because to speak rhetorically (as opposed to off-the-cuff) is to think twice about what one is going to say.
Also, in the three or four threads we've been using, to my knowledge, none of us has flamed or otherwise harrassed any of the others about the quality (or lack thereof) or content, and have welcomed all comers.
Again, speaking for myself, I fully intend to make some attempt at "classical" haiku (Phaedrus included a link for this recently), which does indeed involve a 5-7-5 syllable pattern, is limited to a single stanza, generally makes a reference to the season, and involves a change of action or intention in the middle verse.[/!HAIKU]

| Just one caveat:
Japan, just like the UK,
Is in Region 2.
Beware ye, also,
Players which, instead,
I can recommend

| Some other student
posted that "learn haiku" link
yet I read humbly.
[!Haiku] I wrote an absurdly long thing about our local haiku style over the weekend, thought better of it, and never posted. But since the topic is open...sorry for the length:[/!haiku]
