Haiku #1

An attempt to figure out Haikus. It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. Besides, it’s not like I’m known for being succinct.

You’ve just left,
but the air
still tastes of you.
I breathe in…deeply.

    Good, but isn’t Haiku just three sentences?

    Hello DokSaab,

    Traditionally, a haiku *is* three lines. However, if we’re following the Japanese form of a vertical haiku, then there are haikus [commonly called haiqua] that are four lines. Three lines was much too hard for me. I’m really quite verbose. 🙂
