Time for some nerd haiku (nerdku?):

Watching the big sky
looking for the Perseids
on a starry night.

SciFaiku takes its form from contemporary international haiku. A usual poem is 3 lines and contains about 17 syllables. The topic is science fiction. It strives for a directness of expression and beauty in its simplicity. Here is a representative example:

Asteroids collide
without a sound…
We maneuver between fragments.
—Tom Brinck, “The SciFaiku Manifesto,”, July 01, 1995
