Tiered Haiku

5-7-5
Pluck my eyes from my
skull and plant them into your
own to see my truth

3-5-3
I don’t know
that you are ready
to see this

2-3-2
But we
won’t let that
stop us

1-2-1
We
never
have

  1. Oh cool! I’ve been writing many haiku’s lately and had a funny thought to create a longer version (5-7-5) repeating stanzas that told a bigger story. But your form presents much more of a challenge and I love how it looks.
