A Haiku for you all!
A break from work
Put on my well worn cowboy boots
Off to the ranch.

Some more from the web.
Lily:
.out of the water...
...out of itself.

James W. Hackett won the inaugural Japan Airlines (JAL) haiku contest (1964) by setting his poem in a 5-7-5 syllable form and also using a colon on the first line for punctuation.
A bitter morning:
sparrows sitting together
without any necks.

Are you bored right now?
Try a haiku for fun ... err,
what season is it?
Quickly rushing out,
excited by the new snow.
Your arse, bruised and wet!

Pair of shoes:
Side by side
in step 'til dying shoe
parts the pair
I think this is 3-5-3 haiku.

It seems that an implicit Haiku rule is that you don't pronounce punctuation. I though I'd exploit that

And before you ask. yes, I have compiled it
