Right before my eyes
all the crosses changed their shape.
They all became noughts.

That's good, Jupira, but it's not Haiku. it's got to be:
First line 5 syllables, second line seven syllables, third line five syllables.

Hello again Jupira'


you need one more syllable on your middle and last lines, e.g. World politics are stinking; focusing on gnomes.


That gives you 5-7-5. That is Haiku. It's fun and we all look forward to your Haiku posts.

Hi Jupira.

Focusing on gnomes,
little men in the garden.
Spying on Britain!

Not togetherness,
but total isolation
is his destiny.
