Collections of Haiku/Senryu Verse
All my waking life,
I've trusted those gone before,
Blind to deception.

Traditional Haiku Structure

The structure of a traditional haiku is always the same, including the following features:
1. There are only three lines, totaling 17 syllables.
2. The first line is 5 syllables.
3. The second line is 7 syllables.
4. The third line is 5 syllables like the first.
5. Punctuation and capitalization are up to the poet, and need not follow the rigid rules used in structuring sentences.
6. A haiku does not have to rhyme, in fact usually, it does not rhyme at all.
7. It can include the repetition of words or sounds
