this isnt a haiku
haikus have 7 syllables in the first line 5 in the next then 7 again why do u waste ur life with poetry ur obviously not very good at it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for visiting Alex.
With respect – you are incorrect. A haiku traditionally has 5, 7 and 5 sounds in Japanese. These sounds do not accurately translate into English syllables. For a better explanation see
Further – the word haiku does not have plural from in English.
Modern English forms of Haiku no longer strictly follow the syllable count.
