My first ever HAIKU

Yellows Vanilla People:):) hope you are doing fabulously awesome. Haikus have always been intriguing to me. it seemed like a kind of Jigsaw puzzle, or rather a maths problem to me so far, until Leo ( Vinay) helped me today with writing a haiku..

HAIKU: Is a Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, traditionally invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.. If its emotions and life involved, its a senryu.

Alright...before you go ahead to read what I are the ways of understanding a syllable- lets take my name for example.. break it into sounds.. so it becomes three syllables Aa- kri- ti. 
Other examples:)
hon-ey ( 2 syllables), beau-ty ( again...2 syllables), ap-ple (2) mis-un-der-stand-ing (5 syllables)

As a first timer Leo tells me that it's tough to figure out syllables. So well I wrote my very first Haiku with his help, on the topic of Obsession which Leo has posted on this blog of his..Here is my Haiku:~
I think of murder
That I had done last moonlight
The thought comes again 

To help understand the goes like:

I think of mur-der ( 5 syllables)
That I had done last moon-light ( 7 syllables)
The thought comes again ( 5 syllables)

I also got to know that if any kind of break needs to be given in between lines, it should come in the second line and the first line and the first part of a second line needs to be connected, and subsequently, the second part of the second line and the third line needs to be connected.. if it seems gibberish to u~ Chk out Leo's haiku on Kindness:)

PS: This above info was for those who are CLUELESS how to read Haiku...other awesome Vanilla people just ignore:)

Oh haikus! :D

I don't really know how to make one.. Hmm, I know I can, if I give it time! Lol. All I know that it should be in 5-7-5..

Question: should it be only ONE statement, that hve 5-7-5 format (syllables).. or I could make 3 short statements for each.

Hmm.. okay. I'd google it. :D
