Code: Select all

if(writingHaiku){
poem = new Haiku();
} return poem.text();


read as:


if writing haiku
poem equals new haiku
return poem dot text


(fixed, though it could have been a public field. Also, note good style would poem.getText(); )

HAIKUS

I have decided
That my haikus must have names
Or rather, titles.

Soft, friendly comfort
Held close to my heart, and yours
Even from afar.

TITLES

Moo's idea is good.

in setting the mood.

Math. It's a course in guessing.

Economics is
Similarly a math for

My understanding
of haikus is limited,
as is my time.
I was thinking of either meditating or napping, but the way I do it, there's not much difference except in the explanation to the rest of my family.

From my prison desk

The journey ahead
A different punishment
A required torture

Until, finally:
Warm, comforting, familiar
My solace awaits.



I could not explain
Why this long, unwieldy thought
Took a haiku's form.
