Is this poem good?

Rating haiku is tricky—

Very subjective.



Introducing friends to “Columbia Homecoming,” I remarked several times that I find it difficult to evaluate haiku. Because the form is so terse, the reader has a much larger role in assigning meaning than is the case for a typical Western poem. This realization led me to jot down this haiku about haiku.
