I haven’t done one of these for 2.5 years, I couldn’t believe it. When I went to write my haiku for this I had to take my Handbook of Poetic Forms out to read about the form. To-date, I have been using the conventional Western treatment of 5-7-5 syllables on the three lines. According to my book you need a short first and last line and a longer middle line, but it’s more important to get the mood than the form, so the syllables are not tied up always.
This is pretty close, but I decided to be slightly freeform.
I am hiding a bit today in a tree of the mind.
