Haiku Variation 6/7/4

Tiny Dancer

Butterfly emerges

petal dancer.



I am studying different forms of Haiku Poetry, growing tired of the standard 5-7-5 that we typically default to. There are so many other forms of Haiku poetry that are refreshing, creative, and stimulating. Here is an unique form, similar to Natsume Soseki (1867-1916). He was a published writer of prose and poetry. My haiku above is a 6/7/4, with a syllable count of 17.
