I've long been addicted to haiku but have always used the 5-7-5 syllabic form due to enjoying the challenge of using that many syllables w/out getting too wordy:

Haikuwrimo news.deviantart.com/article/68… is my first departure from it as I'm taking this opportunity to simply write & the end result will be a 28-verse poem entitled "Winter of the Soul."
Having lurked here for years, upon discovering MSJames' haikuwrimo, I could lurk no longer! ^_^
As for the who of me rather than the why I'm finally a member, I'm coffee for the soul — served w/warmth, wisdom, a dash of wit, a side of quotationaries (quotations w/commentary) & brewed to grok.. (|_|*cheers*|_|)
Furthermore, I'm a dichotomy; an alcoholic who drinks, a believer who questions everything, an extrovert who's anti-social, a dependent rebel, a realistic optimist & so much more (or less). ~_^
