Chem Haiku

Mighty exotherm
Sleeping in reaction mass
Please stay home today

Crystalline needles
Growing from amber liquor
Wistful as hoar frost

Give it a try and post your lines on the ACS Chem Haiku website.  化学俳句

    We missed you, Gaussling.
    Long winter without a post.
    Glad to hear you back.

        Well…I didn’t reply immediately when you reappeared a few days ago, but when the above came to mind I couldn’t resist.

        Here is my favourite haiku. It comes out of my printer once in a while, always on a page by itself.

        This job requires more memory than is available in this printer.
        Try one or more of the following, and then print again:
        For the output format, choose Optimize for Portability.
        In the Device Settings Page, make sure the Available PostScript Memory is accurate.
        Reduce the number of fonts in the document.
        Print the document in parts.
