Haiku: Declaration Of Independence


We are told that haiku
should have a 1st line of 5 syllables,
a 2nd of 7, and a 3rd of 5.

A bonsai tree finding a tiny vase
too constricting sends its roots
to crack the form,

5 plus 7 plus 5 is 17 1 plus 7 is 8

but spiritual numerologists say 9
is the holiest number

All can write a declaration of independence..
from any iambic pentameter, haiku
or other prescribed form.

5 7 6
or 6 7 5
adds up to 9
