Respite: A Haiku poem with 3 lines 5-7-5 syllables about summer


After showing my poems to some poet friends, I got the feedback that I hardly follow the proper structure, or rules of Haiku. So, this Haiku poem is my attempt at writing a poem with 3 lines in the 5-7-5 syllables which is the "proper traditional Haiku format". 
 
Lazy afternoon
even love-birds need respite,
random aimless fun
