first haiku. Keep it up! .

Honest critique and comments shouldn't hurt.
It's why we are here, to get better at our craft.

Thank you both for commenting.
It's really hard to cram everything into 17 syllables!

before I even suggested it.
Do more.
Even though they are supposed to work individually yoo can assemble them into collections that work both individually and as a whole.

A new workshop on the most important element of poetry-
'Rhythm and Meter in Poetry'

To pack a lot in, with very few well chosen words. Drown in dreams within - very nice, if this is your first foray.

You can have fun with them, in the tech industry, we use them instead of "error page not found" messages on websites, (these are not mine, a friend uses them on his website) like:

The ten thousand things
How long do any persist?
Netscape, too, has gone.

The Web site you seek
cannot be located but
endless others exist

Not even kidding, these come from website, which has to be seen to be believed!

Have fun.

Cheers, and take care.
