I wrote this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot about it. I had read a comment to the effect that Twitter's length constraint wasn't that severe, really, since haiku were much shorter than 140 characters, and they contained plenty of expression. I thought it was a pretty silly way to defend the arbitrary restriction of SMS and thus Twitter, but it did make me wonder whether there weren't, in fact, haiku longer than 140 characters. It proved difficult enough that I don't think anyone would write one by accident, but here, at least, is one.
Cleansed crowns weighed strengths, frowned
Spring's wreathed blooms scourged braves' breasts' clouds
Pitched fights brought fraught thoughts
It's not great art, but at least it has a kind of narrative thread.
