Haiku, for no sufficiently explained reason

26 08 2016

I don’t often poem, but sometimes the inclination takes me, as indeed it did recently. Here are three haiku (scifaiku, perhaps, if you’re feeling pedantic) which unfolded themselves from the sporadic poesy-space hidden somewhere in my brain:


Adams, on the sheer size of it all

Space is vastly huge.
Mindbogglingly, really big.
You just won’t believe

Isaac’s Three Rules for Robots

Protect the humans;
adhere to their instructions;
take care of yourself.


Instructions for a journey

Put me in coldsleep.
Then thaw me in the sunlight
of some foreign star.
