ik kijk en doorzie
maar begrijpen doe ik niet
of daarom juist wel?

I look and see through
but I do not understand
or that’s why I do?

Haiku (in Japanese: 俳句 ) is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku ). It’s this limitation that I like so much, try to make as much poetic (non-)sense as you can in just 3 lines! :lol:[/quote:36rh6qsv]

5 7 5, that’s it? ok, i’ll give it a go…

room enough for five
can you fit more for seven?
let’s just stick with five
