    When I was at the spa and recovering from my mystery ailment, I rediscovered Haiku again. I really enjoyed writing these short poems and expressing myself in that creative manner when I was younger (high school). At the time, the subject matter of my poems depended on which girl I was in love with or trying to impress. :)

    Although I haven't written any Haiku in years, I started getting my creative mind working again by observing the natural world in deeper Zen like detail and surfing the Internet for some classics.  Something appeals to me about it again.

    One of my favorite poems is by Issa:

    In my old home
    which I forsook, the cherries
    are in bloom
