Surrealist Haiku

In the past I have produced a few 'surrealist haikus' which I have photographed, but they never photograph very well.  The name comes from the fact that (a) when I started I got the syllables wrong - I did 7/5/7 instead of 5/7/5 and decided I liked it that way and (b) I make them using the Surrealism set of word magnets that I bought at the Surrealist exhibition in GOMA a couple of years ago.

I can't find the exact set anywhere in a quick search online, but I recommend this site, Magnetic Poetry, so having a huge range of fun ones.

So here's today's offering -

gorgeous lake a language &
diamond can sing how
spray rain as frantic lather

I must count the syllables
And enunciate
Weirdly to make them all fit
