Woodi, I'm very impressed! Your haikus are super good! They are so extremely measured that they are good practice for disciplined writing.

I talk too much so it's great for me to practice brevity. However, yours say so much in so few words as they should. Many mess up the syllable count or arrive at words which mean little. It's very difficult to achieve a meaningful verse and keep the count too. There's the rub! But you've done it.

I really enjoyed them

Shakespeare's B-day is coming up in April and I enjoy writing in his style, just for fun. I'll see if I can find a couple that you might enjoy. Believe me, you've never heard 21st century Shakespeare at my house. Jean
