I decided to attempt the first. The team at one deep breath commented that they couldn't find many haiku on the theme of design. I soon found out why. I wanted to take photos of the shapes found in nature and show how they repeat in many forms eg the starfish which is the same shape as a five-petalled flower or the inside of an apple. The problem is that a haiku is such a compact form and there is really only room to portray a thing as it is, without introducing any abstract ideas of how its form reflects this or that.
Here is what I finally came up with. I don't usually do precise syllable counts (not a requirement in Western haiku these days) but this one was looking close enough to 5-7-5 to encourage me to make it exactly that.
