    Louise, You are so right! That precious spark that lights the fuse. That's what the Muse provide. That special moment of inspiration when a vision comes together in our heads. And once the fuse is out world! But we as poets are the ones who have to follow that fuse to the bomb, aren't we? That's the hard work. And we must do it to get that special feeling we get when the words all come together. You have written a beautiful, succinct expression of the creative process...Sam

    That's what I think. Let's put all this technique, style, form nonsense to bed, so we can sleep, and do what poets do best...dream! Good for you--just write. Hugs :-)

    Who cares whether or not it was a Haiku or not. It is good, true, and awesome. Write what you want, write what you feel. Never let anyone tell you what to think and feel--or how to express yourself.

    Never consider trying something new as a failure, it is merely a stepping stone on the path to personal discovery. The poem itself has value and insight. From my perspective it is a success.

    I am not a haiku expert I just know I am not good at them. We in north America tend to describe from our perspective where Haiku is a detached description devoid of individual perspective. Haiku is usually used to describe nature. You may find my form the Questionku of interest. You can look it up under the form tab.
