    Peace yall, i'm not sure if there's a such thing as a string haiku. iIf it's not, i just made it so. In my opinion,there is so much left unsaid by some haiku's that they have to be stringed together. Here's one.

    "Pure Siplicity"

    sitting here counting
    syllables on my
    fingers like it's math

    not understanding
    the simplicity in u
    the beauty either

    that was years ago
    now i understand that u
    are not that complex

    and i accept u
    for the beauty that u are
    pure simplicity

    I don't know about anyone else but this haiku poem strung me as being so profoundly true, being that I count them thangs on my fingers often. And yes, haikus can be stringed. I love doing that from time to time like I did here with The Budding

    I really enjoyed this haiku. I hope you continue to develop the gift of simplicity in your own divine way.
