(A real haiku has so many elements to consider besides syllables that they are a lot harder than they seem. I love the challenge of being brief as I struggle with extra words and rambles at times; Twitter is proof of this. again, a good exercise to get rid of those naughty extra weighing down crutches. Except for the therapeutic “I hate this place” poems my former workplace team and I used to play, I always try to be respectful to the haiku, by at least including some elements of nature.
It feels like cheating, 19 syllables.)
Sturdy row of ants
sweet drops of orange ice pop
will not distract you
