    Interesting Haiku in 5/7/6 syllable arrangement about poetry. I found Haiku is defined as a Japanese poem of 5/7/5 syllable format on topics about nature, mostly using adjectives and a caesaura (pause) in the middle before the last line. This one is a unique form and an innovation from traditional Haiku. It's a cross between a Senryu (Haiku about human foibles) and a Haiku. (Report) Reply
