The latest podcast from www.poetrypea.com This week I’m happy to welcome back to the podcast as our guest Mineko Takahashi from Japan. If you remember she joined us on February the 19th. If you haven’t heard that episode then have a listen. Her Haiku was very moving. She has raised an interesting question with me this week, but more of that later. This week I wanted to briefly discuss definite and indefinite articles in the writing of Haiku. Sometimes I really want to leave them out and I have been picked up by fellow English language writers and told that I shouldn’t do it and more puzzling, that I had strayed into Tontoism.
