Three (Stanzas of Haiku)

I’ve decided to write haikus this year to help me process things (like Ricky Baker in Hunt for the Wilderpeople). A haiku is a form of poetry which originated in Japan. Haikus typically contain three lines of poetry; the first line holding 5 syllables, the second 7, and the third 5 again.

In my piece below, the first stanza holds 5 haikus, the second 7, and the third 5.
