Today's note - hokku

Haiku, standing alone as we know it today, has evolved out of the process of renga - a writing game of linked micro verses where the opening verse the hokku set the pace in terms of season, mood, and tone. Its was Basho who first started writing the stand alone micro poetry which we have come to accept as the genre haiku. Needless to say the renga (in a variety of forms still exist)
