    It's aboot a boot.
    A boot keeps your feet warm, or
    At least one of them.

    Haiku threads do rock!
    You don't need any content,
    just play with the words.

    Unheeded by feet in boots

    early evening shadow
    sneaks low across the valley—

    trying to catch the heron
    in the creekbed unawares?

    (Yeah, I know that’s too long for a haiku...)

    Ah philosophy!
    The art of misnomer or
    misnomer of art.

    Ah, art!
    Of my life,
    the larger part!

    Rested muscles still intact

    Could someone please remind me of the rules governing a haiku, in haiku format.... I'd google it, but it'd be nice to have them in the thread.....

    As far as I understand the popular form is (and just for you here it is in haiku format):

    haiku: a poem
    just seventeen syllables
    penned: five, seven, five
