Poetry Challenge

OK, so I've skipped yesterday's prompt. I promise to get back to it.

I had to laugh when I opened my blog to make this post because the last poem posted is haiku format 5-7-5 while lacking the essential nature subject of a true haiku and today's prompt was to write a haiku. Of course, this being Tuesday there was a double prompt, with the second part being to write an anti-haiku. So here they are. I reckon you will be able to tell which is which.

Dogwoods shining white
on woodland's barren fringes,
springtime's gentle snow.

Speak not of strict form
with seventeen syllables,
haiku not for me.
