  1. A resounding YES from me! Remember: “It is if you say it is”! There is no governing body in haiku. Haiku is an art which transcends rules and regulations. There is no such nonsense in sculpture, painting, music or ANY of the arts. And we will have none in haiku. *grin* You’re doing great. Read a lot of good haiku, and write, write, write! 😛 ❤

    Warmest,

  2. In a word — No. 5-7-5 has to do with FORM…one form that got started in English-language haiku in its earliest days (1950’s) and was based on a misunderstanding of how the Japanese count haiku. You can Google 5-7-5 and read about it. Enough for now to say that you will write in many forms before you are through. 3-5-3, 4-6-4, and many other forms are seen routinely. If 5-7-5 seems natural to you, then do that! For a while! But don’t stagnate! Experiment! Play! Have fun! It’s YOUR haiku! Do with it what you will, and no one can say you are wrong. *g*

    1. Hi Zee, thank you for all your comments! I have removed a selection of my poems as I am compiling a gift book (no haikus though!), and would like the material to be a surprise! So that is why perhaps maybe your couldn’t reply – the post may have been removed! Xx
