      1. I know its completely unrelated, but how do you check the syllables. I never bother to check it. Now you got me thinking too. Should I change and go with the 5-7-5 rule of haiku?


      2. I think you can do whatever you want… it’s just that if it isn’t 5-7-5, it is no longer a haiku (which technically, unless we’re writing about nature – it isn’t a haiku anyway).
        I like to keep the beats, because despite knowing a haiku is 5-7-5 and is supposed to be about nature, I can get away with the no nature thing, but if I just throw up 6-9-4 or 5-7-6, I feel like I just come off ignorant to the craft.
