Neil Gaiman, a favorite author of The Graveyard Book and Coraline, started a poetry trend on the microblogging site Twitter. Using the hashtag #MyNightinHaiku, Gaiman asked his followers to come up with haikus to tweet and share. Some of my favorites.
Through the mist: I hear / territorial barred owls / I wait for the dogs. #MyNightInHaiku

Home now, for a week/ Melting snow flooded my path/ walking twilight dogs #mynightinhaiku

Haikus are prefect for Twitter since their compact form fits well inside 140 characters. Do you have a favorite haiku?
