Spliced In - Day 14

...one finds a selection of elements based on an inward poetic aesthetic; the main images are novel and captivating; in terms of images alone, this is a fine microcosmic shasei, much in the manner Shiki has elucidated: at first glance, the haiku presents a realistic impression. However, this haiku goes beyondshasei and realism, utilizing four modes of disjunction, which may be termed "perceptual disjunction," "misreading as meaning," "disjunction of semantic expectation," and "linguistic oxymoron." We can find no kireji or clearly defined “traditional” juxtaposition of images in this haiku; in its form, the haiku is strikingly similar to a simple declarative sentence. What makes this short declaration an excellent haiku?

Yes Gillena, i have...and i've saved it and all others for further reading; though i'm not sure if i'll remember anything when i write a haiku -- may be it will help me assess the kind of haiku i write....and that could be a much, much later date; if at all :)

sometimes you know, i get so interested in studying poetry, reading...but then, presently more important for me is my work :)

just sharing my thought,

wishes,
devika
