(It is not widely known, but Dennis is one of the leading non-Japanese
writers of haiku verse, and has been featured in the Japanese literature.)
Dennis: "This is supposed to be a haiku - almost successful; 5/7/5 beats
or accents - not feet - and should have a caesura after the second line;
the last line is not sufficiently explicit. It was written during the
Social Movements Indaba meeting late last year."
A single emerald
flares from a dewdrop flinging
a green prismed flame
