beating of our hearts

    beautiful imagry

    however, the technical format for a haiku (as with a senru) is
    5 - 7 - 5
    your format now is
    8 - 9 - 6.

    Most of the time we accomplish the sparity of beats by eliminating articles & compressing ideas into ferwer words.
    For example:

    Snow falls, covers land

    Then you develop the theme & put the pathos or irony into the third line to seal the nugget.

    Try your rewrite in the format & J think you'll like the outcome
