Bees don't move through honey except in the same way they move through amber you oaf.

Although there's probably the odd picnic where they move across it like flies across fly-paper.

This occurred to me as I wrote it, so imagine my suprise when it was selected.

It occurred to me also I could have said honeyCOMB, but it was a warm, dreamy morning, and the idea of moving through golden honey suited my sensations better.

This haiku is also pretty irregular.

Awesome!
The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is to high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.

Haikus annoy me.

"Ooooh this poetry lark is an interesting art form, with a unique capacity to depict the depth of the human experience. Let's make some pointless syllable based rules for it, that'll improve it! This is now the correct way to do poetry."
