    a variety of ways.. sometimes a word will trigger a poem and the title will include that word, sometimes it will come from the overall meaning when I read over the finished work.. sometimes the damn thing can't be named (a problem I am having at the moment.. pfff) . Usually though, they speak for themselves. I find it best to let the poem chose its own name by speaking to you, really.

    My friend Kenneth Verity, who writes books of haiku on strict principles (his, or Japanese, I wouldn't know) but essentially a game where the reader has to link two apparently disparate statements in their mind, naturally believes that to name a haiku loses the whole point of it. To exaggerate the situation, titling a haiku which reads 'The mayfly are breeding/plop' as 'Flies over a trout river on a summer evening' would rather spoil the intention?
