~ e ~ Or Just Another Haikuish

Offering 1:

e. e. cummings wrote

without capitals sometimes but

not all the time

Offering 2:

e. e. cummings wrote

without capitals sometimes

but not all the time

{Okay, you caught me. I just could not come up with  five syllables in the third line of the first offering or seven in the second line of the second offering, but I have a book of haiku that says that you do not have to be rigid about the whole syllable thing. I will dig it out and make it the subject of a post.}

[Can you fix it, or can you live with a fractured haiku?]

New info: a smart reader noticed that the second offering actually did have seven syllables in the second line and I just don’t know how to break down a word. How funny is that? Capitals has three syllables and not just the two I was allowing it. Thanks so much for your input rfljensky.

E. E. Cummings
