are words like "gathered" considered two or three syllables in Haiku? I think it should be two

Me, too. I wasn't so concerned with syllable count as I was with line sequence of short-long-short.

We've had a good response, and hopefully generated some much needed help for northeast Japan.

We'll post our poems very soon!
