    How can this be a haiku?

    forgive = 2 syllables
    and you'll = 3
    be forgiven = 4

    9 syllables instead of 17? No concrete image! No nature reference!

    Consider these -

    the fat lady
    bends over the tomatoes
    a full moon

    by a. pizzarelli

    a single tulip!
    hopelessly
    i passed on

    a drizzling rain...
    washing their blood
    into their blood

    by m. mcclintock
