Best. Haiku. Evar. (maybe)

My favorite haiku, until I read this, was:

From the bough
floating down river,
insect song.

And it still might be my favorite. If so, yours is second. And hey, the one above was written a couple hundred years ago... so yours takes the prize for best modern haiku.

Well, to be honest, my haiku does not include a nature reference so the hundred-year one will still win any competition. But perhaps modern haiku don't need no fancy schmancy nature references. You never know!

Say, what's in that bottle you're holding in your user pic? That's a mighty big bottle to be toting around there. :)

Hrm. Perhaps you we should edit. How about:

Butterflies are nice
Found the Kahlua bottle
It's White Russian time

~or~

Marmots are so cute
Found the Kahlua bottle
It's White Russian time

~or better still~

Musk ox are real big
Found the Kahlua bottle
It's White Russian time

Ya know, something like that to cover your bases.

As for the photo, it's an (unfortunately) empty jug I found when I was doing archaeological compliance work on an old mining site in the Wrangell Mountains. I found it next to an old moonshine still (which is in the photo, just not the icon).

Well, you don't have to edit the first line, ya know. It could be:

It's White Russian time
Found the Kahlua bottle
Then streak through the woods
