Well, the haiku I write, for the most part, encapsulate reflections on love found and love lost among erotic excesses (laughs): always starting never arriving, just the journey and never the destination. I apply only one haiku/renga rule consistently in writing about unrequited love. The classical line break rule I heed, but I keep to the present tense and singularity only mostly, utilizing suggestion and compression almost always, and every once and a while, rhyme to help recreate a poetic circumstance that hopefully arouses emotional attention.
