      (Haikus are a form of Japanese poetry containing 17 syllables; 5
      syllables
      in the first and third lines and 7 syllables in the middle) A link at
      the end
      gives a little more info on this form of poetry for those interested.
      If you
      have a thought, you pretty much have one line of a haiku. Try it, it's
      fun.

      A Few Haikus On a Winter Day

      fishing for wisdom
      in oceans stocked with patience
      ancient mariner

      all expense paid trip
      still 40 miles from normal
      dimensional shift

      weathering the storm
      lightening strikes the meadowlark
      flashes of insight

      over and over
      experience graduates
      immortality

      imagination
      collects empty canvases
      inspiration's muse

      earthworms till the soil
      irrespective of purpose
      original zen

      sacred mandala
      content within the circle
      no need to exit

      thoughts evaporate
      mindfulness and mindlessness
      sipping tea is art

      stillness rocks his world
      an earthquake out of nowhere
      cat nap is over

      self-discovery
      what's the meaning of it all
      illusion is real

      walking in the rain
      thoughts a million miles away
      the birds find shelter

      drowning steals the breath
      unexpected travel plans
      no destination

      trapped inside the pane
      the fly exhausts all options
      dead in October

      buzzing scientists
      masters of geometry
      combing hexagons

      eight-legged elder
      weaver of the web of life
      multi-dimensions
