Consulting Haiku

Posted By Mark Haas CMC FIMC, Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Updated: Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Perhaps the most sublime expression of the independent consultant’s heart and soul is haiku,  a traditional seventeen-syllable verse form of Japanese poetry. Set in three non-rhyming metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, the consultant haiku expresses both the profession’s philosophy and the innermost, unspoken feelings of a consultant pursuing truth, beauty, and elusive clients.

Perhaps the most aspirational haiku:

My client calls me,
"Six figures if you come now.”
My alarm clock rings.

The attached file has a dozen more haiku - please create and contribute your own.
