Okay. So a haiku is a Japenesse writing style. It follows the 5-7-5 form.
Example:
Squirell in a tree
It jumps, Letting blue jay fly
Let blue jay be!

i don't know if i can pull haiku off. especially since i have to be careful with syllables. but i'll try when i have time. i'm a bit busy at the moment. but this was a good addition to the group.

message 21: by check (new)
