I have a love-hate relationship with these, but I do believe they make us stronger. Sometimes it's good to come back to reality. It's not the end of the world.

Oh, rejection letters! Like from publishers and stuff! That's what we're talking about! At first I was like "That a nice response when someone sends a rejection letter in response to your love letter!" Lovely hiaku! You got gutsy and used words with more than one sylliable! I aploud! (Or however you spell it...)

I HATE REJECTION LETTERS, ESPECIALLY COLLEGE LETTERS! xD I love the simplicity of your words. It's easy for anyone to understand, and it's straight to the point.

I've never recieved a rejection letter (unless you count one teenink sent me, but I had sent it in the wrong section XD) so I didn't know how this would apply to me, but the simplicity of make it work! Great job. Keep writing!

Hey!  Really good.  I've received so many rejection letters, I can't even keep count!  I saw your post in the forum, but couldn't find the two you asked about... Will you look at mine?

Well, I received a rejection letter too!!! I like this poem. It's so true... I like the rhymes too though haikus don't neccessarily have to rhyme...

This is super lovely, and I like the simplicity of the lines. The idea might be fun to expand on in a longer work, but one thing about haiku you don't seem to be exemplifying is that the first and third lines need to have distinct, different images attatched to them. Otherwise, lovely work!

I'm not a big fan of hycues (don't know how to spell it) but this is what happens.
