Haiku composition can be a rut in a muddy road, a tune that gets stuck in your head, or a bad habit, like an addiction. In order to write anything else, I had to break my habit of writing one, or more, each day, for hundreds of days on end and then did it again and again. On the up side, when done in that kind of habit, it can serve as a form of meditation practice.
I think my haiku tend toward observation rather than conversation and in that sense I might compose a third line here as:
"Drifts on distant hills"
I very much like the spare form, but make no pretense that americanized haiku, from my hand at least, is in any way Japanese-like, except perhaps in condensation and spirit. I do not read Japanese.
