The poetry I call "Tokuisei Verse" was developed over a period of several years on an internet web site called FREEREPUBLIC.COM.
I would like to thank the owner, operators and financial donors who provide this public forum for allowing me, without condition, such a frivolous use of their bandwidth.
Tokuisei is a Japanese word meaning singularity.
(A point in space-time at which gravitational forces cause matter to have infinite density and infinitesimal volume,
and space and time to become infinitely distorted)
Tokuisei Verse is a direct descendant of the traditional Japanese Haiku.
However it contains only nine beats.
It is sometimes titled and sometimes not.
