When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Ahahahha yes, at first I had no idea either. In fact I still am somewhat divided as to whether the topics I choose to write in Haiku form are indeed meant to be written in it or not. But still, the bare minimum is the syllable  count I suppose. 5 in first line. 7 in second line. And 5 again in 3rd line. And there you have your Haiku ^_^

OKAY. HERE'S THE STORY: I really wanted to write a Haiku but I had no idea what the requirements were so I Googled it. Google then proceeded to give me the entire history of Haikus and Japan and cherry blossoms and I had no idea what to do with that information. SO, using the lump of tissue between my ears, I TRIED to "replicate" a Haiku. Aaaaand...I failed. But thanks for telling me! I wouldn't have known otherwise. I need to research harder. Andthanksforthecomplimentbytheway :)

I don't see how this is a  Haiku unless you forcibly make people into five syllables which is not possible I think :P But anyway, It sure is a pretty cool poem man. I like the stark truth expressed boldly and the picture goes too ;)
