just "a friendly chat" an impossibility given your wholly uncompromising sense of deeply self-righteous (false) monopoly on truth *coff* ... could you please pass those savory crisp garlic- roasted brussels sprouts perfect in small quantities for intense pungent bouquet
The most intricate Japanese Poetry form is the Choka, or Long Poem. The early form consisted of a series of katauta joined together. This gives a choice of form structures of 5/7/5/5/7/7… etc., or: 5/7/7/5/7… etc.
The Choka could be any total line length and indeed many exceeded 100 lines. Looking at this, it is easy to see why Poetic Historians believe the katauta is the original basic unit of Japanese poetry using either the 17 or 19 unit onji.
Moonwashed weekly prompt
🌶️ This week’s challenge is ‘The Spice of Life’: Choose a spice from your kitchen cabinet, and relate its flavor to an event that recently happened in your daily life. Write your syllabic poem! Bonus—if you share a photo of the spice in your post. 🌶️
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Excellent take.’ uncompromising sense of
(false) monopoly on truth’…
‘Brussels sprout’ googled and found it is called ‘ baby cabbage’ in India.
❤️🙏🏻 Indira 🙏🏻❤️ ~ is that what they are called in Hindi too?
I have never seen, though. Don’t know how it tastes.
