Doug is leaving us
We'll miss him as he will us
Sending love his way
Write a haiku (or senryu, or anti-haiku). Or two. Or thirteen. Try to stick to the 5-7-5 structure. Or not. Try not to stop, satisfied, when you’ve achieved the 5-7-5 scheme, if that’s what you’re doing. Polish it until it reads smoothly and grammatically (in this case, sentences orsentence fragments). Replace abstractions with concrete, crystalline images. Give us an extra reward in the third line. Be original.
