Random Haiku 3

How big is my love
for you? Moons wide,
Heavens high, Oceans deep.

As you know, most Haiku poems written in modern times, don't follow the original structure of the 17 syllable: 5-7-5 line count. Also they are now broad with their choice of subject matter.When writing this, I was trying to focus on describing the size of the love for a person, Oceans deep (describing depth of love) Moons wide (describing width) Heavens high (describing height).
I was trying to move away from the traditional structure, at least with this poem.
