Thanksgiving haiku

Someone (sorry, I’ve forgotten who) issued a challenge for the holiday haiku of 3 lines with syllables of 5-7-3. I’m not sure this follows the rules exactly, but it sort of works.

    That was me with the haiku. 🙂 To iterate, haiku follows the pattern of 3 lines at a 5-7-5 syllables pattern … so first line is 5 syllables, second line is 7, third line is 5. So try again.

    Well, you got the syllable count in the first two lines anyway. The writing site that I write on does a lot of contests using the different poetry styles like that. I had never heard of a lot of them. I am a traditional poet. I like lines that rhyme and think a poem should always have a good smooth rhythm to it. I had a hard time critiquing others work when it was a Haiku or something because they generally don’t rhyme. It is interesting to learn the different styles though.
