Haikus and how they happened

First, random tune popped to mind ("Cosi Cosa" from, I think, "A Night at the Opera") which made me think of the irony of Ophrah Winfrey naming her production company after Harpo --

Assimilated
 via palindrome, Harpo
 now means "blah, blah, blah."


Then, as long as I'd already fallen into the haiku trap (probably Firda's fault), I figured I'd comment on Beat Takeshi's "Fireworks (Hana-Bi)."

Satori on film:
 Beat Takeshi Kitano's
 tranquil Hana-Bi.


Finally, once you've written a haiku or two, particularly if it's the first time since 3rd grade, you make meaningless observations, like:

Yellow sticky pads
 are great for writing haiku
 to take home from work.


Oop, lunchtime ... gotta go.
