I like the different and abnormal syllables and structure, however, my stupid perfectionist mind almost wants it to be in regular haiku form, so maybe play around with that? But overall I like the deep meaning of the poem. It really makes you think. Report abuse shadowrider said... Jul. 10, 2011 at 11:32 pm: I love it! Report abuse Markus said...
