Are you serious about haiku?

When I first started writing haiku an hundred years ago -- well back in the early 90s-- I would write a verse, arrange it in 3 lines of 5/7/5 syllables and call it haiku. Then I found out that content is THE defining thing in haiku. Haiku is simply a "one breath" moment from nature written as a concrete image in such a way the reader infers "aha!" and relates it to his/ her human life.
