Oh… Well That Changes Things

So, apparently,
this 5-7-5 structure
is not quite correct.

In Japanese, right,
it’s sounds, and not syllables,
that really matter.

Other than keeping
short-long-short, it seems haiku
are quite flexible.

Well then…
I guess I can compose
haiku like this.

Hmm…
I wonder if it’s the same with tanka
?
Possibly.
Potentially.
