Haiku of the Month (April through June 2008)

I've been polishing my scientific writing skills recently yet I don't want to let my newly-acquired haiku proficiency get too rusty. If you are unfamiliar with this ancient Japanese poetry genre, click here. Below are the haiku poems for April, May and June.

Wedding Haiku

Eleven o’clock
On twentieth of July
Two thousand and eight.

Wong Kerlee Center
And University Church
You are invited

That day I marry
My friend, my companion, and
My bride, Sunny Kim.

July twenty-one
If you come to our wedding
You are very late.


Uterine function,
Of long-term hypoxic sheep,
My PhD please.

Seventh-day Adventism

Sabbath, prophecy
Christ’s coming, sanctuary,
And state of the dead.

If you could sum up SDA beliefs into a haiku poem, how would you write it? Can you write haiku better than I can? Prove it by submitting your entries below!

See Tim see Sunny
See Tim falling for Sunny
Run Tim run tim run.

Now it is too late.
Tim has fallen very hard
Ouch Tim ouch Tim ouch.

Gravitation strong.
Sunny exerts massive field.
Tim cannot escape.

So they will get hitched.
Beautiful ceremony.
Happy Tim Happy.

Soon another joy.
Ceremony with more gifts.
Uncle Norman proud.

Now Tim must work hard.
Adventist education
expensive for kids.

(Thought I should see if I could do as well as Rachel did last time...)
