Light filters through, ashimmer
Distant horn a mournful moan
Fog rolls in.

Yes, I counted, exactly 17 syllables. Like sonnets, I sometimes think writing haiku is akin to forcing your muse to jump through hoops. I live in Seattle and, at night, I hear those deep, bass foghorns moan through the fog on Puget sound from miles away.

Not only a real haiku, but a good poem.
