This is just my thoughts and they don’t really mean much, but at the same time why not write something? 

I feel like writing only three short lines would be very easy, but I see my own writings, and others that I say that just didn’t come out right. A lot of them just can’t speak to you very well. Then, I pondered the idea what is a good haiku? 

I believe a way/format/concept of a haiku is the following: 

First line- Abstract idea

Second line- Abstract idea 

First two lines just need to be separate thoughts/unrelated 

The third line- Gives you the insight

Whether it explains the common ground between the first two lines or it brings up a new concept and the first two lines somehow fit into it. 

A human being 

See what you can’t see
Love what you never loved
A better human

This haiku has gotten a lot of attention, and it is over 2-3 weeks old, and it still gets views everyday. 

The first two lines leave you at the thought of So What? And the third line brings it back together. Maybe this way of constructing a haiku can be looked at like a metaphor with an explanation at the end.
