|Haikus are an ancient Japanese form of poetry consisting of three short lines. Rather than trying to rhyme, the lines are constructed to a prescribed meter (number of syllables). In the traditional form, the meter is five syllables on the first line, seven on the second, and five on the third. The last line contains the solution to the problem posed by the first two lines or somehow leads the reader to a satori moment of enlightenment.
This forum is for haikus, and only haikus-- this present introductory text excepted. Preferably, these would be haikus related to appliance repair. For lots of examples of this, see my appliance repair haikus archives. For a more full haiku experience accompanied by koto music, light up a spliff and savor these Haikus for Appliance Repair.
And now, this introduction reduced to haiku form:
Three short lines: 5-7-5.
Last line: Satori.
EDIT: Okay, starting to get doofusses posting appliance problems in the haiku forum. Non-haiku posts in this forum will be deleted.
