thanks Richard, I think you got what I took on...I looked from general to specific....ocean to fish tank, the reverse order actually...

Okies new friend now that I know what you were going for...[first 5/7/5 is fine..it's less of a problem than subjective content and a lack of two part,so, do 5/7/5 if you want] you have a better chance at a good haiku if you write it from an actual experience. haiku writters often carry a small notebook and daily LOOK for inspiring things or surprising things in nature to write about. So it was a great thing you were writing from your immediate feelings and not all memory.

my golden fish dies/ in the bowl he lived in--rainfalls outside [here I gave the reader the image you SAW, and by adding a believable image of rain outside..I have lent sorrow and the illusion of tears, we know the fish is in a glass bowl, can see through it and can picture it sitting in a window]

even though this may not be the real scene it is believable. It is not believable that an ocean is there though we could work to make it so..

Sorry to hear of your fish dying..Sometimes if one notices in time there is some treatment for them..I enjoy watching fish in a tank but then sometimes I think that it might be not good for them to be penned up like that..Great Haiku topic and great presentation..Enjoyed reading this morning..Thanks for stopping by..Sara
