Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

I've just been informed that this haiku has won third place in the Haiku North America haiku contest. Haiku North America is a gathering of haiku poets that occurs every other year. This year's meeting, which I was unable to attend, took place aboard the Queen Mary, in Long Beach CA. Approximately 1500 entries were submitted to the contest.
