Archia chapter 4 . 3/8
I've read your other few haikus and I loved all of them. They all captured so much imagery and interest in the short words they had. This one is definitely my favourite, it had so much emotion in it and was almost sad. They were all really great.

Again, the lack of punctuation rather annoyed me. I didn't really know when to end a thought or when to start one. I -did- like how you showed the delusion of hope near the end of something; it really displayed an important trait of humanity well. Good stuff.

I didn't like the absence of punctuation at the end of the second line; it seemed to slip off into white space. Maybe a colon would work. I liked how you showed God's sorrow to see his creation killing each other, because it really put emotion into the haiku.

I like how you don't specify exacly what 'vast sea' you are referring to, because it gives the reader a sense that the haiku's topic is something intrinsic to the writer. I also like the alliteration of 'storm and stillness;' it all comes off crisp and tasteful. Keep it up!

Oh, very cool. I like how you vaguely personified nature, because it made the poetry really breathe, if you know what I mean. I also like how this could be taken metaphorically; poems with deeper meaning are always worth more. Onto number four!

The rhyming here was awesome; again, it provided a connection throughout the lines. However, I would have liked to see a hyphen between 'ever' and 'soulful,' because it would help the rhythm.

I liked how you used the linked images of "night" and "stars;" it really made the connection of vivid imagination throughout. I also like how you used the 'stars' to show the lovers' happiness, because it just seems so fitting for love and joy. Great work.

Aw these are sweet, nice work. Lol and your title reminded me of the formation for a haiku, thanks! xD
