      1. Haha, you asked for it 😅
        I have been reading recently about the traditional structure of Haiku being different – starting with 2 syllables etc. Sometimes I feel like I am breaking the rules. This is where I struggle with form over flow. I know I technically shouldn’t have any punctuation and there really should be a lot of symbolism etc and nature references. Oh and the unexpected twist…. Haha see what I mean. I think as far as pure Haiku goes, I’m doing it wrong. But then I think… Who cares, use the current widely accepted format?
        What do you think?

      2. Yes there are traditions and these come with parameters but poetry should be free for the individual to interpret and flow from as they see fit

      3. Haha! Sounds like a lethal combination! Thanks again. Sleep well for when you do (I think it’s too early for you yet). Keep writing your death poetry 💜


      4. I feel slightly fraudulent calling them Haiku though 😏 But I guess as you say it is my interpretation and I do try to keep as close to form as possible.
