@Patrick82432 @hwoodruff98 Here's what I have to say. 1.) The title means, "Light of Hope" in Latin and I wanted to say the first line that is similar to the title. 2.) I had tried 20 times with a syllable counter just it case and it results in 5. "Light" counts 1 "is" counts 1 "Hopeful" counts 3 However, I did do some literal researching and found that Hopeful counts 2. I will consider the advice of replacing light with "sunlight". Thanks for the suggestion woodruff98!!! 3.) To hwoodruff98, I got some advice from @Hanban12 that the haiku would flow more with the word "which"than "that". 4.) For the title, I did it in Google Translator. I speak Spanish and English, kinda lazy to go in depth of the latin language. :P @Patrick82432 Do you know latin? If so, then maybe I could use the help!! That's all, Thanks you two and please let others know about the haiku!!! I want as many comments as I can!!! (and likes too!!!)

Maybe you could try "Sunlight is hopeful?" That would make the first line five syllables. Additionally, I think the word "that" would sound more fluid than the word "which," but that's really picky and a stylistic choice. In any case, it is still a nice piece :)

As well as what @hwoodruff98 said, the first line consists of 4 when it should be 5, but it's still great!

Love the piece! It's short and concise, as a haiku should be, and conveys its message very well. I love everything about it, however, I believe the Latin you were aiming for would be "lucem adferre"

@hwoodruff98 Right, I double check each haiku I have for syllables. Making haiku's can sometimes be a pain when it comes to syllables. :) Thanks for the comment!

Oh, it doesn't really matter if it drops down to a fourth line, because that's just how it's formatted on the website. It's about the syllables. :) And of course. It was a lovely piece.

@hwoodruff98 I tried what you said, but it stills makes the second phase two lines, but I really appreciate the advice.

I know what you saying. The second phase is supposed to be one together like "healing our hearts from darkness" in one whole line. But, it makes the phase two lines. I'll fix it as soon as I can. Thank you for the comment. Hope you have one red checkmark too!

This is a nice piece, very classic in its message, but it's not a haiku. A haiku consists of three lines. The first line contains five syllables; the second, seven; and the third, five... If you wanted it to be a haiku, you could say: "A light is hopeful" (five syllables), "healing our hearts from darkness" (seven syllables), "that haunts us too long" (five syllables). That being said, congrats on the red checkmark!
