Hello Haiku

Whew, I'm finally back to the blog, trying to limit it to my themes of India and/or the writing life.  Taking a poetry class with Thomas R. Smith.  Great fun.  Reviewing a form a week, authors of the same, examples of their work and signs of their times; practicing writing, sharing our own.  Last week:  Haiku.  Three lines, of 5-7-5 syllables, respectively.  Or less.  Here are a couple of my own:

Two or Three Haiku
by Shirley Smith Franklin

Habit forming.                    (p.s., It really is! Like eating's hard to stop!)

Dusk in the forest.
Out of gathering silence
An owl calls my name.

Why all these
Miss-understandings?                       (spelling, sic)
Why not Mister?
