Peaceful star with worlds
Collides with another star
Making a new sun

The author's comments:
I wanted to write a haiku about the formation of a star when two stars collide. Instead of an explosion ridding of both stars, the two stars join together to form a bigger, hotter star.

Dramatic, yet to the point, as haikus are meant to be.  Your syllable counting is, of course, spot-on and I like your choice of words.  "Collides" give the reader a very powerful mental image.  Excellent work!

This is very interesting. Typically, haikus would be about something naturistic on Earth, but you described an action taking place outside of Earth. Nice!
