A Handful of Haiku: Have you heard

The empirical
And evolutionary
Imperative...blood

A cloud can't be touched
A rainbow's an illusion
Can't embrace a breeze

Have you heard you can
Hug a tree and make it laugh
Some're ticklish you know

Writers of haiku
Prove that one doesn't need a
Big pot to pith in

By itself, the last stanza is an all-time, all-time classic. Meaningful giggles! :) gw
