Another year’s cake is cut.
Older, feeling younger, but not necessarily wiser;
Adolescence should wane next year!

  20. Amrita Ghosh says:

    Hey Ji, thanks so much for your consideration…I’ll send in my entry today πŸ™‚


  21. hi Amrita, this is a really nice tercet πŸ™‚ indeed a birthday is what u say..!


  22. Amrita Ghosh says:

    Hi Leo, thanks much for the explanation…you’re right, it’s a deviation from the classical Japanese Haiku and takes more a form of the modern day English Haiku. I will definitely aim to follow the rules you outlined in my next one…cheers!


    • Leo says:

      umm, welcome for the edit.. i try to help when i can.. managing Haiku Heights, it sort of becomes my duty too πŸ˜€

      even the English Haiku uses syllable count itself, not word count, Amrita πŸ™‚
      only thing, it doesn’t stick to 5-7-5 format.. makes it a maximum of 17 syllables in any format of 3 lines.


  23. hope u don’t mind me correcting it.. plz, u needn’t moderate this and the previous comment.. πŸ™‚
    i tell the HH participants the problems too when/if i find..


  24. Amrita Ghosh says:

    hey, chill πŸ™‚


  25. -D says:

    i feel the same way. πŸ˜€ I mean, every year another year is added yet i grow up backwards. not like mr. benjamin button though, but more on my mental age. LOL. loved it.


  26. Jingle says:


    I know your submitted three poems,
    would you please link them up yourself?

    it requires online images, thus I could not make a decision of what image your use…
    Thanks for the attention!
    Happy Monday!
