It’s a true craftsmanship, writing haiku, and should not be approached in any other way. Because of the craftsmanship mastering the craft of haiku writing can only be done by doing it. Practice, practice. And while writing finding sounds and rhythm and finding for yourself the rules for writing haiku. Finding the rules by studying other haiku too. That is traditionally the way to go, for a reason.
As darkness drips into the daytime, nature shuts up and shuts down. Bird song is the last to leave just before winter’s solstice. Despite the turmoil in the clouds, lowering ones eyes, coming to a full stop and turning inward is the only way to go.
