I’ve been reading some of the rules for English Haiku. A rule in Haiku is a bit of an oxymoron. My sense of the short verse is to let your mind roam, and describe the place where it lands.
In diminishing pentameter, and, perhaps, increasing profundity, here is some Haiku para tu
A rush of feeling.
Smitten by an age old love.
I feel once again.
Shorn of your essence
After thinking about it for a bit, I think I agree with the author that 3-5-3 is a good length for english Haiku. It seems like that is the best pentameter for me… balances stupidity with dilitance just right 🙂
