Just a silly thing that popped into my head as I was eating breakfast this morning. Definitely not to be taken seriously!!

Meta-haiku #575

If you have to count
Syllables in a haiku
You're doing it wrong.

It is not so hard
To feel the number seven
Surrounded by fives

But the subtle part -
A reference to nature:
Can feel quite contrived.

And the bonus theme -
Emphasize the opposites:
Few try. Many fail.

Still, I love haikus
So elegant, yet simple:
Poetry's lilies.

Haikus can be strange
if you're counting syllables
nature won't enter


True :)
