Carpe Diem #242, ambition
It occurs to me that a lot of what I write is not really haiku. Perhaps not even senryu, either - often just words arranged in quasi-haiku form. Occasionally, I hit the mark, and I cherish those moments. Mostly I write what resonates at some level, or possibly just amuses me. I don't have the ambition [read: dedication] to become a great or world-renowned haijin. But I do have the ambition to continuously improve my craft, in the hope that some small fraction of it might reach the level of art.
