I belong to a number of Facebook groups that focus on haiku. Last week the following "found ku" was posted by Norman Darlington:

the cook & the gardener
that first time
in a borrowed tent
My co-worker, Elaine, and I found a few ku of our own while we were checking books in and out.
a fly went by
frog and toad together
...the close shave
the forgotten sisters
happily ever after
good as gone
We probably could have spent our entire desk shift finding little poems amongst the books, but we had customers' returns to check in and books to check out! Amazing how work can both help and hinder the creative process!
If you'd rather read haiku than move books around to find them, borrow The Haiku Anthology: Haiku and Senryu in English, edited by Cor van den Heuvel [811 HAI].
