The sky is weeping
Tears of relief and despair.
I absorb them all.

    I will give you the very easy stuff first [though folks have been arguing over haiku form from day one what I tell you most agree on] #1 no titles [the point is to give as much insight as you can in under 17 syllables, using a title is like cheating] #2 no punctuation except for proper nouns and to indicate the cut/juxtaposition/shift in focus

    #3 no poetic vehicles [because these color the write with your judgement of the scene- alliteration in small dose is the only 1 which is ok - much much later we can speak of metaphor] KEEP reminding yourself the write should be 'as simple as porridge' [oatmeal ;)]

    This is lovely and uses personification which makes it more like free verse to haiku-a-fy it, it would look like this [a light rain fell/upon the dry ground--my tears blend] It's a very very hard form to learn! If you want haiku help I will be glad to help or just tell me "Debbie let me BE!" I will! just trying to help..Light & Love
