Reply And I bet you didn’t even notice that it’s 5-7-5. 😉 Reply ha, ha, no I didn’t ;-D Maybe it’s because there’s just enough words; not too many, not too few. Reply Not too many 5-7-5s work out that way, that’s for sure… I think I’ve only written 2 that I actually like. Reply Found some of my earlier ones in Danish some weeks ago, written in a time where I didn’t know better – my toes still hurt. You’re right. The majority 5-7-5’s I come across seems to hold too much info and doesn’t flow naturally. IF I have written more of them I am blissfully unaware of them 🙂 Keep it up & together.
