Why would my readers be interested in a poem? How could a 5-7-5 pattern communicate anything other than a self-indulgent stand-in for nothing else to say?

Brush paper with ink.
Form a word. Wrestle a phrase.
Your essence on a page.
Chefs cook. Mouths awater.
Gardeners nurture. Flowers bloom.
Writers write. Readers change.
Wordiness says less
than brilliant simple phrases.
Few words. Focused thought.
What do you think? This neophyte poet seeks approval. Happy Haiku Day!
