Day 4 of a week of poetry

You've made it past the halfway mark! How is the poeting going? I've only missed one day (yesterday) and I liked the prompt so much that I'm still going to try to make it up today. I want to try my hand at crafting a beautiful image for the sake of beauty. 

Today we're going to work on Haiku. That means you're going to shoot for 5/7/5 syllables. Some folks do this all on one line, some folks do 5 syllables on the first line, 7 on the second, 5 on the last. It's up to you. You can also do multiple stanzas, or just one. Focus on conjoining two images or ideas as simply and concisely as possible.

See you tomorrow, friends!
