Haikus settle in
Syllables counted on hands
No rhyme books this time

Count world’s syllables
Five seven five forever
What are cutting words

My haiku would look
Much more sophisticated
In woodblock kanji

This is a reverse haiku
It’s strangely harder
Seven five seven is tough

I want to get to
Metered and rhyming haiku
It just isn’t true
