Just wanted to make a small addition to the entry I made the other day about
the Haiku web site. I realized after I sent the e-mail that I had neglected
to provide any examples. I will now correct that, and hope that they will
inspire you to check out the site at http://mikan.cc.matsuyama-u.ac.jp/~shiki.

The rainy season
Sparrows taking shelter
Left me chuckling
in the mist
"One cannot make good haiku simply by going about one's life in a day-to-day
fashion. It is necessary to hone one's senses to the world around one and
take an interest in all things great and small."
