    Further, while "WTF" may be a suitable Kireji, the verse given lacks any discernible kigo. Dec 12, 2009 at 21:27

    Ooooh. I hadn't thought of that. I'd totally un-downvote now if I could.

    @Phoshi - Added haiku tag. Now unfrozen is your vote. Up-vote if you wish. Dec 12, 2009 at 23:51
  • Bah! I un-downvoted, now I can't upvote for some reason. Still, I un-downvoted :P

    @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. Dec 13, 2009 at 0:56
  • If I explain this will someone be angry with me? There seems a convention to avoid answering this question.

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
