Everything You Wanted to Know About Haiku and Senryu, But Were Too Busy Writing to Ask

On the Essays page, look for the newly posted essay, “The Difference Between Haiku and Senryu,” originally published in Haijinx in the spring of 2001. I had a link to this content on Haijinx until now, but the site has lately been unavailable, and I wanted to point out that I largely disagree with my earlier point of view. I’ve written an updated essay to explain my change of opinion (which changed at least a dozen years ago), and I hope to get that published soon, at which time I’ll add it here too. Until then, take a look at the original essay and tell me what you think.
