    Am no expert on haiku but I see no problem with this piece at all. Dance is clearly important to you. (Report) Reply

    dear Emily, thank you so much for reading and commenting on my poem 'Nocturnal Snowing'.
    When I read your words, I couldn't remember what I had posted on your page..
    Be sure that I appreciated your poem. I only tried to give you some information about haiku (this kind of Japanese poetry has a lot of 'followers' also outside Japan, but many don't know it well, and misinterpretation are quite common) .
    You are very young.. But I'll tell you, it is really beautiful to know that at 12 you already love Poetry! !
    Keep on writing and posting!
    Ciao

    I have noticed the comments on my poem, and i wasn't aware that it would cause many problems! If this bothers you then i am sorry for the misunderstanding! I haven't heard of a Senryu form, so i didn't realise that it would cause confusion! SORRY! ! i feel as if i should have properly researched!

    a nice write, Emily, this first poem of yours posted at P.H. - Yet, it is not a HAIKU, sorry.
    First, being it about dance, it is about 'human nature', not 'Nature' - from this point of view, it's more a SENRYU, not a haiku.
    But to call it a senryu, you have to modify the 3rd line, because senryu (like haiku) , have a 5-7-5 syllabic structure (in Japanese language, it's a bit more complicated, but in our languages we have a syllabic division) .
    Then, the title: haiku don't have title. Usually also senryu don't have title.
    A senryu doesn't need a 'kigo', so it's ok (but, saying the truth, also a tiny minority of japanese classical haiku don't express a kigo) .
    WELCOME AT POEM HUNTER, Emily and thanks for sharing! Keep on writing

    u right and i think people should learn what haiku is if they want to write haiku.so i find g.t.boston's comment absolutely out of place
