Haiku What?


Turquoise telescope
Bringing the unknown closer
While having to wait.

Ed B:

Origami hat
shields the brain from mind control.
Now I see clearly.

Doc Al:

As "Haiku What?'s" go -
This one does not inspire.
Sorry. Got nuthin'.


A kaleidoscope
Tweeks my imagination
Dreams abound forever


Be it hat or boat
Old newspapers can conjure
Prepubescent bliss

The molehill, conquered.

Time now to dream the ascent

of distant mountains.

Martin Lundqvist:

Man is destined
for greater things than
slaving for pyramide stone

Thanks for all the info, your blog is extremely helpful.

Tom Wms.:

Hey John: How about this thought? The kid with the telescope represents Israell sitting on a pyramid looking at Egypt's future.

John Cox:


Neat angle. That gives it an editorial vibe that certainly is appropriate for the times.


the news of the world
in its proper perspective
the wise look elsewhere

Did anybody pay attention to the text on the hat? Words of doom & gloom, the crown is contradictory to the brim, & one fragment can be read from the brim to the crown (& it's a good summary of what newspapers truly are).

I was stumped for the "Haiku What" until I scaled the image up.

This image seems subtle, but it has grown on me. This has become one of my favorite illustrations you've done, John.

This kid looks like he'd be a great character for a children's book--maybe a fable that had implications for adults as well (like Aesop).
