  [vote for,

My first thought was to
Dedicate A Haiku Day
But the time is past

The fifth of July
The year two thousand and five
Would have been ideal

< 5/7/5 >

Although to you yanks
sadly the seventh of May
Would have had to do.

So I say we just
Name a week, <and shame the weak>
So, what do you say?

       There once was a man   

       Who wrote his thoughts in haiku   

       Haikudos to him

       Does 5/7/5 give
.14 or 3.5?
Does anyone care?

       This shouldn't be a halfbakery thing. This should be an international holiday.

       English too compact.
five-seven-five syllables:
it is too verbose.

I prefer the spirit of the Japanese way. The spirit of haiku is to force the author to use only the really important parts of what he has to say. The above haiku would be properly written (despite syllable count)

English compact
consider carefully.
use few words.

       Author wants something   

       To be more widely practiced.   

       This is called "let's all".

FlyingToaster, Nov 12 2008

       I did not intend
for people to make a list
