Wisp of smoke: A haiku poem

The idea for this poem originated from the namesake of this blog, which I recommend checking out; it’s in the nascent stage, but shows promise. Additionally, I like the brevity inherent in a haiku poem because it forces you to make the best use of your words. If you’re not familiar, the formatting for a haiku is three lines with five syllables on the first line, seven syllables on the second line and five syllables on the third line.

We were once in love

but you seem to have forgot

like a wisp of smoke…
