  Haiku Rules?
by Sharmagne Leland-St. John

Foolishly decreed
And then some other one
Complacently agreed
With a gesture, oh so grand
And a sweep of
His dismissive hand
The word ”cicada
Should be
Forever banned
From modern Haiku
And poetry.

Sirs, I ever so strongly
Disagree with you.
3 & 4 syllable words
Like “cicada
And “stacatto
And “chrysanthemum
Should be sprinkled
Like wild flower seeds
Wherever and whenever
The poets please!
