    A Drabble is a very short story. Exactly 100 words, no more no less. I started a thread for drabbles.

    How on earth does one pronounce "Res'stance" and make it sound anything like its supposed to be??

    Rez-stance. No break, no Resi. That's how I pronounced it anyway. Poetic license. ;)

    OMG, I had no idea! I love her stuff and was wondering just the other day why there haven't been newer stories from her. :(

    5-7-5, not 3-6-4. Nice sentiment, but not haiku.

    It is, actually. Traditionally, haiku counts sound units - moras - rather than syllables. A mora, so far as haiku is concerned, is counted for each syllable nucleus (generally the vowel sound), and for each syllable coda (other elements after the nucleus) in a stressed syllable (e.g., Nippon, the Japanese name for Japan, has four mora: ni-p-po-n). :)

    As I have no experience with Japanese language or poetry beyond what I learned in English class, I will defer to your apparently superior expertise. I stand corrected, and your poem was very nice, indeed. :bolian:

    Thank you. :)

    I was surprised to learn about the mora format, actually. I looked up the traditions of haiku before writing, since I hadn't written one in years - apparently, a mistranslation (the Japanese on - which means "mora" - to "syllable") has led to our including extra moras that we shouldn't.

    Brit - thank you for the link to Dakota's work. Really very lovely. A real tragedy for more than just the loss of her wit.
