I have another with an unusual first line that will be published in Frogpond in their summer 2015 issue.  Good luck with your project.  Rebecca Drouilhet

"The Seven Points of Haiku":

Enjoy 'looking into the eye of the #haiku' & not just 'around it'.

An example of opening lines with commentary can be seen at:

extra note:

Finding an opening line is always an adventure! Whether the first line is a single line fragment, or the start of your two line 'phrase' section, or the first words of a monoku one line haiku or even a duostich.

Remember that if you create a collection of poems, that variety is good for the reader!
