i found more on Life
in seventeen syllables
than in god's bible


The author's comments:
I didn't capitalize god, because I don't want it to specify one god. In this poem, the god is universal, so is the bible. Only Life could be capitalized.

Beat, perhaps? Anywho, thank you. And haikus are like miniature Bibles. By the way, that haiku sounds powerful and soooooooooooooo amazing. (Jeez, I need to stop using that word too much.) Thank you, amiiiiiiiggggggggaaaaaaaaaaa.

Haikus are tiny little Bibles. Totally. The smallest pearls of wisdom, the most difficult poem to write. I read one once- forget who wrote it, someone American and famous- but it goes like this- "Making jazz swing in seventeen syllables AIN'T no square poet's job." This reminded me of that. Keep it up, friiieeennnddd :)
