I forgot I did that

In Response To: Dick S. explained it.. (Lynne)

I forgot all about that. It also brings up Elena and her past contributions to this forum. (I have not forgotten her).
Lynne, your last verse is fine. It may not fit 5-7-5, but it fits the other verses, so it is fine.
There is also another form of writing which uses haiku: Someone writes a haiku, in the standard 5-7-5 form. Another person writes a response to that first haiku, in a 7-7 form. That can be done again and again, as 5-7-5, 7-7, 5-7-5, 7-7, etc.
Also, you do not want to be too rigid about the number of syllables in each line. Just have fun (a pot of green tea helps).
