The DBO Challenge - Week 1: Write a haiku.

Never got haikus
They are indeed too damn odd
I blame Dagoonite

Seriously, though, would some kind soul enlighten me on how haikus (haikii?) work?
Do they have a cadence or melody or something?

Seems like you've already got it figured out. ;)

No specific cadence or melody, just be sure you have the correct number of syllables.

(Personally, my favorite poems to write are limericks. The additional constraints of rhyme and meter make me feel more clever and the form lends itself to a punchline. That's a challenge for another week though...)
