Is this the best haiku ever?

>> No.17032931

All poetry is just people using big words to describe simple things that everyone experiences. Woah, look at that tree bro it's like it's alive and bright or some gay shit.

Yeah, imagine using words to describe things.

Is that the one he wrote when his young son died? If so, I sure hope >>17032931 won't experience that everyday feeling in his near future.

chink symbols (which nips use) have a lot more meaning that typical latin/greek script words.

So, how does that concern me? I can't read moon runes, if I could I wouldn't be discussing English translations of anything that's Jap, but I'm stuck with the translation so the nuances of the original might as well not exist. If the translator tries to deliver the impact of the original and manages elicit a particular image followed by certain feelings, it's usually more than good enough for me.
I like it when they go the extra mile and inform you of the various meanings and nuances of the text but that's rare in haiku collections.

Not one argument. Would you rather read a book or a 13 sentence poem? Which do you think has more depth and what can convey itself better?

>> No.17033899

A succint poem describing an everyday scenery will always be better than the best a writer can do for the same scenery.

>> No.17033900

it might come as a surprise to you but words written in alphabetic script have depth and multiple meanings too

>> No.17033937

But they're both words? Why couldn't an author write that poem in their book without phrasing it like a poem? Nice cope.
