Your poem was descriptive of light and dark, but how is this a haiku?

*Please stick to the 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 sllyables

You are correct it is not a haiku it is a Bussokusekika. Both these types of peotry come from a braoder genre called Tanka ( "Short poem"). Although, my poem is two syllables short for instead of 38 it has 36, sorry :( The Bussokusekika was usually set on a slab known as the Bussokuseki in which it is the silhouette of Buddha's feet stone. However, thank you for asking on Haiku, for clearly it is not LOL Also thank you for commenting :D I hope you enjoy some more of my poetry :D
