Hooked on haiku

I attended a workshop today called 90 Minutes to Improve Your Writing.  One of the exercises was to write a haiku, the traditional Japanese form of poetry that consists of three lines of text with 5, 7, 5 syllables on each line respectively.  

We had to describe our jobs and here is what I wrote:
Respond to emails
Run around like a chicken
With its head cut off

I learned that:
Haikus are powerful
To convey the right meaning
Choose words carefully

Here's my new out of office message:
I'm out of office
Will respond when I return 
next Monday.  Thank you

And in summary:
I'm hooked on haikus
I'm going to Haiku-ize 
everything I write!
