The Economist has an article about science haiku at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference:
Thermal Moonquakes: Implications for Surface Properties
Sunrise and sunset
Cracking, creaking, and rumbling
The Moon never rests.
I do have to admit I've probably written more than my share of haiku and pseudo-haiku, including more than a few science haiku. If you like science haiku, though, you owe it to yourself to check out Mary Soon Lee's "Elemental Haiku," in the journal Science: one haiku for each element. And the sciku project page, the latest scientific and mathematical discoveries, thoughts and ideas... in the form of haiku.
