Not strictly traditional Haiku
Watch the modifiers and try to avoid anthropomorphizing ( shy leaves, frogs welcome, crickets . . . never fearing) if you want to write haiku in the classical tradition. Haiku is about what's happening here and now. But write what you want.
Thanks for those tips, Bill. I appreciate them.I often veer from tradition(sometimes wildly) and I'm definitely guilty of anthromorphizing.5-7-5 is a very basic haiku form, but it works for me as a framework of sorts.I have a lot of non-traditional stuff written (which I will continue to post), but I will strive to be more 'in the moment' with my future haiku.
