moment's reflection
car idles at a stop light
love from the unknown

reading my friends' lives
the public and the private
wheels kick up gravel

the human waits while
computer waits for human
procrastination

thank you for the lies
infinite perspective kills
getting through today

and... a special "12 seconds" haiku, because I'm playing with their service because I'm integrating with it (ish) for a client, and totally got sidetracked. *cough* But hey, just 12 seconds at a time! Well, maybe 20 minutes total...

:heh: I figure they're good practice. And the stars seem appropriately aligned. :)

Mack does not love haiku
Rhyme schemes are where the love is
Mack is sad
But does not write haiku himself
recognizes talent where he sees it

ha! Yeah, I don't love haiku myself. but I'm looking at it as good exercise. :) And the "best of the best" I can appreciate, I think. Just ... it's easy to spit something out and call it 'ku (see above ;)

*hug*

Heh. Was the form too constraining?

Have you seen my villanelles? ;) And why can I never spell that word?

I just don't seem to have internalized them at which point they're all forced. haiku I've worked past that some--it's an easy form to practice. ;)

Nope! Haven't seen 'em. Show me some villanelles or post some?

I haven't internalized any poetic form except doggerel, I think. :)
