    Here's what my dictionary says about haiku: " 1) a Japanese poem of 17 syllables, in three lines of five, seven and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world. 2) An English imitation of this."

    Ok, here's my English imitation:

    Oh I have no way
    to describe the cardinal
    but he defines red.


    And shall we do them all in English here? Thanks in advance to all you writers of Japanese for graciously catering to people like me whose knowledge of kanji, hiragana or katakana is thus far limited to admiration of assorted textile designs.

    Not mine but I like them.

    Whoops, here they are.

    From Corner Stores In The Middle Of The Block: That Urban Look

    The lady that I like
    is very unlady like
    Yet, perfect for me

    and the Fight Club ones from the novel

    Worker bees can leave
    Even drones can fly away
    The queen is their slave
