Kevin's (kjs68) excellent poem Disinformation prompted me to read up on modern interpretations of haiku. Amongst lists of on-line mags I found this:

http://www.nahaiwrimo.com/home/why-no-5-7-5

I confess I was staggered. I ask myself where have I been to miss this and how the F*** could this have happened. As a 5-7-5 haiku and senryu and

5-7-5-7-7 tanka person I find this a load of bollocks, but maybe I'm wrong. Certainly this "new think" will make writing haiku etc easier, but I don't consider it's valid.

I'd be interested in wot other folks think about modern forms of so-called haiku.
