Haiku Form

This spring night

United under the same

Big moon

This is my first nontraditional haiku. This time I did not follow the 5-7-5 form, that I followed in my first collection of haiku: “Travel Haiku.”

How do you prefer to write your haiku? I welcome your feedback!

Self-Publishing or Finding a Literary Agent

Should I self-publish my collection of haiku poems or find a literary agent? According to this article https://www.writersdigest.com/publishing-insights/how-to-find-a-literary-agent-finding-agents-appropriate-for-your-writing we should find a literary agent who represents our writing genre and follow his or her submission guidelines. I would like to publish my first collection of haiku, which are related to travel and culture, through the traditional publishing route. I will keep you posted!
