Today's Poetry Corner features not one, but two poems from our readers — a haiku for our Japanese friends, and a sonnet for our 400-year-old English friends. Enjoy!


THE ART OF HAIKU
by Dan Verdel

A haiku story
It is hard to make things fit
Sometimes, you have to cheat


SONNET 18

by Clint

Shall I compare thee to a
summer's day?
Better to that than to the Summer's Eve,
a popular feminine deodorant spray
that hardly puts me in the mood for love.

-William Shakespeare
