When you try to research the rules of haiku, the guidelines can be daunting, and the information out there is varied. Some say it's just a simple matter of a 5-7-5 syllable count on three lines, and other sources give FAR more complicated rules, and some say the 5-7-5 rule should be disregarded if writing a haiku in English. It can make you tentative to attempt it, but I enjoy writing short poems, and I like a challenge, so I've written a fair few of these. The one you've done here is lovely.

Richard,
Now this something Iv'e not tried; (Haiku) To present the picture you have intended is really neat! I love the way you have honored Japanese culture of the season here.
Delicate says so much in the first line and then in the second line I found the phrase "meandering gentle hosts to feel like the breeze carrying the fragrance and the people being blessed by all the beauty also blessed by the fragrance.
thanks so much for the great inspiration in both form and style.
