Haiku Friday: Museums

I recently made my first visit to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. This was my favorite scene in the dinosaur exhibit, which brought to mind the words of a famous hymn: “All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small . . .”

Dinosaurs

Contrary to popular belief, nature doesn’t always bring one closer to God. After all, “the T-Rex ate them all,” as a friend recently sang for a new ending to that hymn.

So let’s celebrate the magical world of museums in haiku this week. All you need is one verse with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Here’s what came to mind for me:

At the museum,
T-Rex comes to life in my
imagination.
