    So close to a haiku....

    debug code with print
    a mind using alcohol
    dogs with flea powder

      But it's still not a haiku (at least to my limited understanding) because it's not about a seasonal event, and his original form, I feel, reads much more poetically. What is with this obsession of things that look similar to haikus? Is it just that they appear easy to create and everyone wants to be a poet?

        The basic form of ha-i ku is an "amusing sentence" that follows the three-line, 5-7-5 form. Note, it must be a sentence, not several. There are more constraints, depending on school of thought and whom you ask. Popular constraints:

        • Must have to do with nature
        • Must have to do with a season
        • If using the above constraints, you must introduce that element in the first line of the poem.

        .oO all things connect through the motion of the mind

        Is it just that they appear easy to create and everyone wants to be a poet? Yes.

      Heres one I made earlier on the same theme
