Close Enough

I'm not a haiku.

I have too many syllables

In my second line

I've been letting my pedantry quota decline lately almost as fast as I've been letting my poetry quota decline. Both declines can and will be reformed.

The haiku form is not just defined by syllable counting. A haiku must contain a caesura at the end of the second line and a reference to the season.
