What I Learned Writing a Haiku Every Day for 100 Days

Is there a reason you continued your lines with a visual break, the dash, instead of just starting the next 5 or 7 words on a new line? I understand that in some forms of poetry, mainly Shakesperian, you read each line continuously like a stream of consciousness, but in your case it seems like you are challenging the traditional notion of a haiku. Simply your visual representation of the haiku with the dashes and lack of left alignment alters the way we read a haiku, and in my opinion the mood is thus altered.
