Haiku (Igloos)
A world of dew, and within every dewdrop a world of struggle
A room of cubicles And within every cubicle A world of struggle
A continent of icecubes and within every icecube a contingent of snuggles
Igloos under night sky Light reflecting on snow Snuggles and giggles within
yummy-bears for bears crunchy on the outside chewy on the inside
This sequence of Haikus was inspired by the venerable Japanese poet Issa - whose wisdom forms the first stanza. The second and fourth stanzas were penned by Ninna whilst the third and fifth are mine. The fifth is a direct reference to a Far Side cartoon of bears eating igloos.
