News Haiku: Art at Work

The masses have spoken. The News Haiku is back for the month of November to celebrate Art at Work month. Here is a recap of the news as presented in a haiku.

Seahawks heart attack;
Pothole Pig takes center stage;
Chilly election.

Now you try it: American haiku consist of 17 “ons” (also known as morae), in three phrases of five, seven and five "on" respectively. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this isn’t quite right since syllables and “on” are not the same, but this is Tacoma so we make our own rules. Use of three lines of up to 17 syllables, with the five, seven, five pattern. Use of a "season" word; Use of a "cut" or "kire" (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) to compare two unrelated images.
