I find haiku really difficult Gwil - i think it is because I usually use far too many words in my poetry.
I think the haiku form is undergoing something of a revolution - you may be on to something!
Personally I think since the 4 Fukushima Daiichi meltdowns (not over yet) the haiku form must change - rather like poetry did after Auschwitz.
