I am on another list where haikus are often generated after someone
important dies. There have been long discussions on that list about the
true structure and reasoning behind this particular form of composition
- I think the best website that gets into the whole story is:
http://www.ahapoetry.com/keirule.htm but there are many other places
that explain why (or why not) using 5-7-5 structure is the essence of
the non-Japanese language haiku...
anyway, this thread is great!
