*This last one was actually co-written with my friend Phil Helmers on 2/9/2011, and is obviously the root of the mail haiku/senyru used for the title on this post…

Why So Many Haiku in One Post?
Nearing year’s end, looking back on the 2012 Haikumages “post-per-day” Project, it occurs to me that I regularly post more than one haiku/senyru on a day, including my alternate, additional versions, and variations on the same topic, or with the same words in different arrangements… WHY do I write so many versions and post so many of them sometimes? Does writing and posting multiple Haiku/Senyru defeat the purpose, dilute the essence, and/or bollocks the brevity of these poem forms? Or am I simply out of control, and unable to restrain myself to just ONE?
