The Haiku Format

Words of Aqua

This format is not
just a three lined structure, it
needs the following

Five syllables in
first line, seven in second,
five in third again.

Oh and don’t forget!
Reference to the season
is also required.

One may not follow
the number of syllables
per line yet one can’t

let them exceed from
the five seven five format.
Fewer syllables

though can be used; now
I hope you all like this piece
and get my message.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

    1. You are welcome! I like the creativity of this approach. I have been thinking about such things myself: morphing classic poetic structures into something new. Nice work on your part.
