How Many Syllables?

Post date: Jul 31, 2016 6:48:2 PM

I enjoy adding postscripts to particular essays, amplifying previous thoughts or even changing my mind on earlier points of view. I’ve just added a new postscript to “Go-Shichi-Go: How Japanese and English Syllables Differ” on the Essays page (also linked to from the Postscripts page). It’s about the stance to let writers decide how many syllables problematic words might have when writing syllabic haiku. Also new are images I’ve added to my “Punctuation in Haiku” essay and my haiku sequence, “The Mended Shōji,” plus a book photo added to the Haijin’s Tweed Coat page. A new poem for Hortensia Anderson now appears on the Memorial Haiku page, and I've added a new poem to the Tinywords page. Please take a look.
