What, did the congressional super-committee axe haiku before they failed to accomplish anything constructive? Here's one to get the ball rolling.

Do-it-yourself'ers:

Learning curve can be shallow,

How much is time worth?

No bites? OK, here's another:

Oven lies heat-less,

Parts strewn about the kitchen.

Hero makes it work.

A chef with no stove,

Fast food and cold-cuts, he eats.

Then fix-it-now helps.

Cold Shiner Kosmos

Sweats calmly on the coaster.

A day's work is done.

(Shiner Brewery is in Shiner, Texas)

Good day to all,

SD

These are really good. I'm too wordy to be good at haiku....it's actually a higher form of art than a standard free verse poem (Robert Frost says "writing free verse is like playing tennis without a net") not only do haiku's have a rigid structure but you have fewer words to convey your meaning. Much like a short story is a higher form of art than a novel. You see, I use too many words to say even the most simplest of things and i go on and on just to say the same thing over and over again as I am too wordy to say it in just a few words what you guys can say in a simple haiku although it is really a complex thing even though it is using just a few words which I am not really good at doing since I say the simplest things over and over again , you understand what i mean? :yes::dontknowaboutyou:

Verbal founts spring forth,

Inundate the intellect.

Concise is sublime.
