My new page of haiku hints

I have started a page on writing haiku hints. Lynettea thinks my explanations may be rather too long. I have only put on two hints so far. But I think it is a good idea to really explain things, so other cats will really know what to do.
More hints as soon as I can get my paws to the keyboard. Let me know if you understand these first two hints or if they are too long for you.

Four Chinese cats have looked at my blog this week. Ni hao ma?

I think your hints are just right, Diamond! I had no idea about the difference between Japanese syllables and English ones.

Lift up my paw !
I can do typing for you ! I'm really good at it ; )

Diamond said...

thanks for the comments. I will be able to paw some more soon. Lynettea is really busy organizing work for a reading event and she gets tired of me asking. I am more important though!!!!!

Yeah, we've seen Mr Puddy's typing, he is well good at it :)xx

We think your hints make perfect sense, Diamond. Our dad knows some Japanese. While he knew about the Hiragana, he did not even know to think about how the syllabaries would apply to Haiku. Fascinating!

Diamond, we like your haiku hints! we didn't know so much about the different styles - only the syllable count for English haiku. very interesting! hope you can type more soon. we'll have to try our paw again at some poetry. Purrs,

Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
