Haiku

Haiku

Why must people mock?

I think it’s a noble art

To choose words wisely.

This is just a quick something I just came up with today and wrote. Now I’m not too sure if many people make fun of haikus, but it seems to be an issue where I live. And it’s not a huge problem either, just a subtle jab at haikus I guess. I think this stems from the belief that poems must be long and ornate to be meaningful, and yes, some can be, but not all are. Beauty and truth can be conveyed in other ways, and I think there is this mentality that when something is short, it is seen as immature or not fully thought out (sort of incomplete).  Anyways, as always, thanks for reading!
