In Praise Of Haiku

It all started last March.  Emily Caswell, who was then working at the front desk here in the Dankosky Building, sent an email to all employees about a pair of glasses found in the parking lot.

I wrote a haiku:

doesn’t it look fine
seeing the world in a blur
without these glasses?

Two weeks later, Emily sent us all an email about a gray men's belt found in the parking lot.
So I wrote:

As gray as the sky,
As gray as UFO men,
This belt, found in March.

In April, Emily notified us about a black and yellow glove found near the door.
I wrote:

in black and yellow
once you were two orioles
now, Michael Jackson

So I started to wonder if anybody else writes work haiku. This show answers that question.

What's your haiku? You can join the conversation, email colin@wnpr.org or tweet us @wnprcolin.
