      With a haiku, you literally have to take 5 minutes to say a simple sentence. You have to make sure it follows the 5-7-5 rule, duh.

      It says 5-7-5. So you can speak in sentences with 5 syllables and you can go higher, and you don't even have to use five. What if you never read the rules and don't know what it is? Then you would be fine!

      Haikus are really cool, and they describe nature and stuff. Only problem is, they describe things. senryu poems are about human nature, have haiku pattern, etc so if would be easier if those could be used too. On the other hand (in all caps so its distinguishable, /=line break), THE SNOW IS SILENT/MOVEMENT AS A HARE DARTS PAST/SILENCE ONCE AGAIN haiku is awesome
