  1. L1 sets the theme and mood while unexpected yet emotionally evocative L3 makes this wedding haiku fresh (with its focus on a wedding helper, L2/guest, L3) and multi-sensorily lighthearted.

    And it might be interesting to do a thematic comparison reading of the following haiku:

    wedding bells
    the seat next to mine
    empty yet again
