I'm sorry but the goal is to be constructive and/or supportive. I know you are speaking honestly, but those words are very harsh to hear as a writer. Keep it up, WinterRose.

to be honest in my opinion this haiku is really bad you shouldn't get any award for that, but it should have at least some type of punctuation.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Awesome! Very short but in my opinion, could not have been written any better or put into better words. I loved it.

Yes! Yes! Yes! This is amazing! I'm like freaking out right now. *five mins later* Okay, sorry for my minor freak-out. I've composed myself. This poem is so awesome. I don't have any word to describe it. But it's gorgeous. I don't think you understand how difficult it is to get actual meaning in a haiku (maybe you do), but it's hard. I can't even do it. So this? This is epic. The personification is purely spot-on, and.. I can't. I'm gonna blow up. But honestly, really really awesome. Really.

I'm basically echoing sanddycandy, but i agree with her. I really like the simplicity of this piece. Personally i don't love Haiku because of how short it is and i find it's a real skill to get a proper meaning into such a short piece and i think you've done it perfectly. i think if u lengthened it, you could make it better, but other than that i love this :D
