looking for the perl within

A lovely thing to see:
through the paper window's hole,
           the Galaxy.

~ Yoshi Mikami Issa. (1762-1826). ~

alone, on the web,
drops of sensitivity
embrace an eyelash

~ Chris Spruck ~

In all this cool
is the moon also sleeping?
There, in the pool?

~ Ryusui. (1691-1758). ~

The haikus were taken from HAIKU for PEOPLE, they are not my own writings, but since they were inherently also talking about perl poetry, I thought of posting them here. I humbly hope I have not sinned.

    I see no Perl here. What do you mean, "inherently talking about Perl"? Just because they're using the same alphabet (and that, only in translation)? Yeah.... no.

    Update: To clarify, I could do the same thing with The Raven. So what?

      I see them saying "perl poetry is cool"..

        Is that what you see? At best, that's a case of pareidolia. What I see is someone selectively highlighting letters in a text in a way that has nothing to do with the authors' intent.
