Just when you thought a Haiku couldn't get any shorter...
Here comes...the Abbreviated Haiku, or Miku!
This form can be written one of two ways: with the syllable count three-five-three, or two-three-two. I read several things about this and the Haiku itself here: Poetry Magnum Opus : Haiku. While traditional Haiku focuses on nature, modern Haiku can be about anything, like relationships or other life experiences. Different countries have created their own forms of haiku.
Below, I wrote two "Miku" in both syllable counts described above.
