    Clever example of concrete haiku. Reminds me of the example by Larry Gates in William Higginson and Penny Harter's "The Haiku Handbook":

    GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG
    RRRRRRESRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
    AAAAAKSNAAAAAAAAAAASNAAAA
    SSNSKESSKESSSSSSNAKESS
    SSAKESSSESNSSSSSAKESSS
    GGGGGGGGGNAKGGGAKEGGGG

    Feels like a description of one of the features that haiku have, that we overlook so much that isn't really hiding in plain site, it's just there in front of us all the time.

    I think perhaps we should stick Don's haiku up on our writing wall as a reminder.
