  7. Kia ora!
    I'm curious about "fam'ly", presumably to show pronunciation as famly, with 2 syllables rather than with 3 as in fam-i-ly. I understand the reason for this in the last line. This is an old poetic use of the apostrophe.

    Perhaps I'm naive, but is it commonly used in haiku? I'm not lauching a criticism btw. I like the haiku.

    Ka kite

    indeed. basically, i cheated. :O couldn't fit the words into the required number of syllables, so i cut one out. :O
