Another non-haiku

Here's another that, like yesterday's, just doesn't seem like a haiku to me. Sure it focuses on a single, 'aha' kind of moment. But it takes that moment and turns it into an abstract thought. It's one of those short poems that sometimes grow out of haiku moments in place of a haiku -- like a brown-headed cowbird chick that grows up in a robin's nest.

for a flash

Could this moment have turned into a haiku as well? I bet it could've. Maybe that's my mission for tomorrow's post...
