She slips here slowly,

dreaming hard. I ran her to

This is my first haiku. If you don’t understand, you’re not alone. I didn’t understand at first either. A haiku is a traditional Japanese poem. Any haiku has three lines totaling seventeen syllables. The first line consists of five syllables; the second line has seven syllables; and the third consists of five syllables.
