--gillena cox

Today's note long/short/long

night rain = short line
insomnia bathed in = long line
tears of angels = short line

Today's tag

Some writers still swear by this; many dont; but i think most writers agree; if you are now getting into this genre its a good structural pattern to use

I always try to follow the long / short / long pattern even though I'm not strict about syllable counting

Adelaide said...

It's a good pattern to follow, especially for beginners.

My own opinion: Don't end the middle line with a preposition. It may give you a longer line but it's also a shapeless line. This "rule" may, of course, be broken for a good reason. And i agree that working with this form is good discipline for the veteran as well as for the beginner. A review of haiku journals suggests it is rather preferred than obligatory.
