Fuji, strong and tall.

By our own hubris and theft,

its strength fails and falls.

    Wonderful haiku with great meaning. However, if you do plan on submitting this to the Vocal Writing Awards by any chance, I just want to point out the last line is 4 syllables. I hope you find my comment well!

    One little haiku that says so much! I'm so glad Paul found it and shared so we can all enjoy it! Well done, Matthew!

    Decided to pick something random by you to read. Will definitely dig into more dragon-based awesomeness soon, but this little haiku packs so much into it! Love it. That picture is awesome too!
