I tried so many times to make a haiku with a meaning...but I never could.
I think you executed this perfectly. Good job!

Emuhlee... It's a haiku
Show's how well versed you are in poetry. Comment on stuff you can understand.

Well done to the author, though it's slightly cliche. I've heard the whole: The world is a novel. I struggle to pen my own chapter. Etc.

Wow. I hope I can learn to find such power of expression. To capture a feeling as intensely and simply as you have here. Most Haiku succeed in only boring me to death or confusing me with trying to find a rhythm. But yours did something else. I was captivates by so little words so much as to wonder how differently your thought process is from us all. The piece was fantastic. Congratulations on being published. I doubt that I need to ask, but, please, please, keep writing.
God Bless,

Emuhlee: It's a haiku, an extremely concise and expressive form of poetry. It's often used by nature writers and people who know what they want to say.

You've already succeeded, Em M. You currently have 3 poems on the front page of most popular RAW poems. I just want to say, "congratulations and how do the rest of us get there?"
With that said, why don't you try for four or maybe five poems on the front page?

I dont know if I can consider this a poem? More like a quote. But unique.

It's a haiku; a line of 5 syllables, seven, and 5. It is indeed poetry, just as the world's best quotes are.
