How about having a little place for the odd line of poetry that can lift the mind to God.
I came across a few while I was browsing for something else and meant to bookmark them but didn't.

Anyway, Just to get into the spirit of things I'll offer my own rendition just to get started.  Grin

There was a young man called Shin
With some smiley’s he went to the bin
When he opened the lid
He cried like a kid
And the smiley’s he couldn’t put in.

Haiku ?  That brings me back to my school days. You should give it a go again.

There's a residential area near where I live and all the streets are named after famous Irish poets Like Yeats, O'Casey, Singe, and so on.
I remember I had to recite one in a local competion when I was about 11.
It was called, The Summer is Coming, by Walter de la Mare but he was an English poet.

We have a little forum family
It is called saintsworksdotnet
Brigid and Martin,
Bailey and Shin,
Terese, Plain Catholic,
and others unseen
We love each other and we pray
All night and all day.
Except when the computer is down
That is when we pout and frown.  Grin

About nature, 17 or less syllables, three lines, and usually a punctuation mark to separate two images.  shrug
