Haiku works for me because I admire the ease with which each one shows a lot in few words. I do love short. While I don't claim to be a master (mistress) of haiku, I keep trying. There are several forms associated with this particular style which means there's something for everyone.
Originally consisting of 3 lines of 7/5/7 syllabic sound in the Japanese language, haiku has been occidentalized into 'few words'. Ordinarily, haiku expresses seasonal thoughts and senryu offers the opportunity to personalize the form with humor, satire or pun. Haiga is haiku accompanied by an image.
Following are two good sites with haiku how-to if you're interested in the form. There are many more as well as several journals and memes which accept submissions of haiku for publication.
Here are four haiku, written to 3/5/3 that I recently posted on Twitter where I write to a daily prompt.
in a pleat of notes
ask for restored flight
longing to pry loose
storm waits in the wings
