these where written several months ago, and just before my computer began acting paranoid and refusing to open the pod bay doors. this Eastern form of poetry is called Soji, and from what i understand it predates haiku by a considerable length of time. this is the order in which they were written, so in a sense they are related to each other and tell a story, however you can read them apart form each other and still come up with your own narrative. the first was inspired by Basho (and his plunking toads) and that naturally lead to the ones and the imagery that followed. i am very happy with this sequence.
if these inspire your own soji, i would like to read them
