Never heard of this form of haiku, but hell, there seems to be many. I don't improvise with haiku, I like the 5-7-5 sort, but like they say, whatever turns ya on. A moral to this one.

... i've not heard of this, Dan... i love these short... VERY short forms! I once had a one-liner published, less than 70 characters all told, including spaces. This little fish certainly knew how to make the most of his many moments by being unmoveable! :)) xx

Great advice in an excellent haiku. I like the style too, might have to give it a go. It made me smile because "Captain Van" and I had a discussion about "country squirrels", and their inherent survival IQ. Smart critters, wildlife. Patrick
