    This is very clever, that is, you wrote a perfectly decent poem but for the purposes of your theme, you use self-deprecating humor. The whole purpose of a haiku is to suggest things, because you can't possibly deal with a subject in just 17 syllables. You are showing without stating it that the haiku form is very challenging and seems a lot easier than it is. Later Japanese poets (late 19th,20th c.) used the Tanka form which adds two more lines. I prefer it to the haiku. The 20th c. poet Yosano Akiko was the mistress of the tanka and gave great encouragement to female writers. She is really special - check her out - you might write tankas too! ! (Report) Reply
