The original intention of haiku, or so I’ve been told, was to be as unpretentious yet wisely beautiful as possible. I’ve very seldom seen one that came off as unpretentious on the web. (I don’t even want to talk about the wise and beautiful bit.)
This haiku by cartoonist/poet/orthodontist Grant Snider is one of the very few I know of that deserves a gold star for filling the bill.
