Asha'ille is undergoing a spelling reform and this page might not have been updated yet!

If you see many apostrophes, it's pre-reform. If you see î and only a few apostrophes, it's post-reform. — Arthaey

Kevin Urbanczyk ran a relay on the Zompist forums at the end of May 2004, with a two-stanza Proto-Drem haiku.

Note: The Asha'ille text has not been updated yet to reflect the spelling reform that occurred after the relay.
