The words are all there --
I just have to scribble them
in the right order.

This poetry thing is really fun. It's weird -- I employ words for a living, yet this is the first time I've really played with them. Anyhow, I've been using the 5-7-5 haiku rule as a challenge to express my thoughts as economically as possible. It's also a challenge to come up with words with the right number of syllables to make things work.

They are pretty good.

The "rules" in poetry really challenge a writer to express themselves. I'm too lazy for haiku, but I love to read it. I think I'm just have term paper mentality: stretch those thoughts way out.
