Haiku

I have recently been bitten by the Haiku bug. They are amazing little things, aren't they? Here are the 3 that I wrote very recently. The last one is sort of a riddle. Try and guess if you can.

Broken heart yonder.
Life is empty and devoid,
Love does not answer.

War lives once again.
Death rides naked and merciless,
Men turn a deaf ear.

Intruder Alert.
Greek tragedy replayed.
Blue death imminent.

My favorite modern Haiku of all time is the one that won Salon.com's Haiku Computer Error Message contest:


Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

Positively Brilliant !!

The land o' dreams,
She had to leave,
Crash and burn.
