I would like to see the creativity of the people here in either haiku or limerick form.

it's a pretty simple concept:
1) choose to write a haiku or limerick, let's go with haiku
2) decide on an aspect about apple you wish to express in a profound 5-7-5 syllable format
3) write said 5-7-5 syllable format poem
4) post it here

got this from wikipedia :
Quote:
Haiku (俳句, ?) listen (help·info) is a mode of Japanese poetry, the late 19th century revision by Masaoka Shiki of the older hokku (発句, hokku?), the opening verse of a linked verse form, haikai no renga. The traditional hokku consisted of a pattern of approximately 5, 7, 5 on. The Japanese word on, meaning "sound", corresponds to a mora, a phonetic unit similar but not identical to the syllable of a language such as English. (The words onji, ("sound symbol") or moji (character symbol) are also sometimes used.) A haiku contains a special season word (the kigo) representative of the season in which the renga is set, or a reference to the natural world.

Haiku usually combine three different phrases, with a distinct grammatical break (kireji) usually at the end of either the first five or second seven or last five morae. These elements of the older haiku are considered by many to be essential to haiku as well, although they are not always included by modern writers of Japanese "free-form haiku" and of non-Japanese haiku. Japanese haiku are typically written as a single line, while English language haiku are traditionally separated into three lines.

In Japanese, nouns do not have different singular and plural forms, so 'haiku' is usually used as both a singular and plural noun in English as well

I'm on a roll. The middle line is 8 (or is it 9? Not sure about MacRumors) syllables. It's 5/7/5 syllables, not words.

Sure is. Was that an actual Apple commercial in the past?
