Further, while "WTF" may be a suitable Kireji, the verse given lacks any discernible kigo. –  ベレアー アダム Dec 12 '09 at 21:27

Ooooh. I hadn't thought of that. I'd totally un-downvote now if I could. –  Phoshi Dec 12 '09 at 22:17

@Phoshi - Added haiku tag. Now unfrozen is your vote. Up-vote if you wish. –  Robert Cartaino Dec 12 '09 at 23:51
    
Bah! I un-downvoted, now I can't upvote for some reason. Still, I un-downvoted :P –  Phoshi Dec 12 '09 at 23:55
    
This haiku stuff is getting on my nerves. I think my cursing finally got to his blog VM... –  alex Dec 13 '09 at 0:21

@Phoshi - You only have one chance. Either "undo down-vote" or "reverse to up-vote" before you are "outside the window." Try again after edit. –  Robert Cartaino Dec 13 '09 at 0:56
    
If I explain this will someone be angry with me? There seems a convention to avoid answering this question. –  Rosinante Dec 13 '09 at 3:37

the first rule of haiku club is do not talk about haiku club –  quack quixote Dec 13 '09 at 4:51
    
Last line could be "One word: WTF" –  Kees C. Bakker Nov 20 '12 at 21:35

all converge to read
written courtesies gone cold
somewhere a phone rings

fruit falls from the tree
birds have not gone for winter
one careless beetle

web in disrepair
spiders go strangely absent
they don't like pressed meat
