"Smiling at the wind,
The leaves rustle,
Summer has come".

Ok, I know that it doesn't follow ALL the haiku rules, but what made it special to me is that it was totally "off the cuff" and came to me as I was doing my morning walk the other day. I passed some trees in the park and a breeze came up and this poem came into my head. I have been reading a lot about Buddhism and picked up a book on Zen the other day. It had several excercises on meditation, flower arranging, haiku, etc. That's what inspired me. Now off to kick ass in class. (Walking away real manly like)
