This one goes out to Rusty Alderson, because this was one of his challenges — use haiku style to describe haiku. Poetry is not my strength, but I don’t want to pass this challenge up. Here goes:

Haiku is a game,

To play, the rules are counting

Down then up then down.

Nature be the queen

Most haiku is about her,

Dragonflies and bees.

How dare I write it?

Five and seven and five. Math!

I am not worthy.

But I must accept

Challenge that was brought to me

To write haiku now.
