I find myself thinking in haiku 5-7-5 language perhaps more than is healthy! I know there are ancient rules and regulations that one should adhere to when composing them but I also like that so many people have found ways to express themselves through haiku or similar forms of micropoetry. It doesn't much matter. Some momentary, transient thoughts are so suited to this form of brevity and would perhaps suffer from being inserted into longer poems.
