Only 17 minutes LEFT!!!

in World Poetry Day. And I wouldn't have known if it wasn't for the intrepid BZ, getting his AP physics kids AND his Music of Physics kids to write poetry. While the American definition of a haiku is it must be 5-7-5, I would point out that often times, haiku are less syllables and in different number schemes. The most important aspect of a traditional haiku is the involvement of nature in some way. For example:

You, walking away,
more beauty in my sky
than any sunset.

or perhaps, for BZ,

falling leaves crumple
underfoot, resonating
autumn sounds and sights


physics is like love
explains why you float and stay
grounded to earth.
