Scratched soul HAIKU HEIGHTS #157 scars deep within never let her brush off that knot unsought. P.S Its my first time so I don’t know whether it justifies to be a Haiku and is within the meters or not. Advertisements Share this:FacebookEmailGoogleLike this:Like Loading... Related 3 Comments Very beautiful haiku!..Enjoyed reading it It would actually be classified as a senryu, not a haiku, since it’s about human nature rather than the great outdoors. However, I wonder about your syllables. You’ve written in a 4-6-4 pattern, one that I’m unfamiliar with, so I’d have to defer the final opinion to those more versed than I. How Will My Soul Less than 17 syllables is ok.. as I am given to understand by experts… very technically…what MMT says is correct…but then its OK..keep writing..I am still learning after two years.. RS:) I would love to have your feedback...... Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
