This is a haiku battle. Post one haiku per round. They do not necessarily have to be confrontational or relate to the idea of a debate at all.

For the record, the idea that there is a 5-7-5 syllable requirement in haiku is absolutely false. There is also importance placed on using "seasonal words."

My idea for this haiku battle is that little to no emphasis should be placed on seasonal words, since they are a new concept to most people and are kind of subjective in general.

Haiku should probably come close to a 5-7-5 structure, but a couple of syllables of variance is welcomed if it makes your haiku flow better. Voters should absolutely not negatively consider non 5-7-5 syllable structure in their voting.

My opponent can begin in R1 if he or she so wishes.

Debates should have comments.

Anyway, some unusual poems so far. I hope this stays forfeit-free.
