'til it dreams of sheep.

Your haiku is broke
Such meter, many syllable
Error: no cadence

Try five seven five,
It is not thirteen five five
Count the sounds, not words

Improving you are
But here goes seven not three
Keep working on it

Haiku is high art
When mastered, pure elegance
But first comes training
