What is a haiku?

As you may know, Haiku has been used for centuries to illustrate a single poignant moment or thought experienced by a traveler and is characterized by three lines of poetry with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. Haiku can be humorous, and often features a description of a single sound, moment, or emotion.

Tiny soccer cleats

A Conversation With Baby, a 3-haiku suite

"Nine months lived as one
With you, have taught me precious
Things about us, and

I look forward to
Learning more of the wisdom
You bring our family;

Today you say you're
Impatient to become two;
Let's go tell Daddy!"

Compensation for all the
