Haikus

Every now and then I get the urge to write haikus. Sure, they're not necessarily about nature as haikus were originally meant to be written, but I still think they're applicable to any subject. The syllabication rules are just a way to provide the writer focus on what he's trying to say without too much window dressing.

2004

Mysterious world
Math defines the universe
God does not play dice

Lights flash through the smoke

People huddled in the dark
Let the music play.

Muted radiance
Shadows fall across the room
Candlelight dinner

Smoldering embers
Gray flecks falling down like snow
Lighted cigarette


2009

I had always thought
But refused to believe it
What do I do now?

Rushing down the tracks
Crammed in the train like sardines
With chittering apes
