    So pretty! I've been trying so hard to understand true haiku because all I learned when I was younger was that it was 5 syllables,7 syllables,5 syllables. But a few months ago I learned that that wasn't the case, and this seems like an excellent example of true haiku. Thank you for sharing! Hopefully I will be able to write them now, because this form is very appealing to me. I like that it's a form that is so little, but can say so much. (Report) Reply

And home we brought you shoulder-high.
