Haiku Errors – Computer frustrations made profound

In Uncategorized on November 22, 2009 at 9:05 pm


Seeing my great fault 

Through darkening blue windows 

I begin again   


Printer not ready. 

Could be a fatal error. 

Have a pen handy? 


A file that big? 

It might be very useful. 

But now it is gone.

Errors have occurred. 

We won't tell you where or why. 

Lazy programmers. 

Rather than a beep 

Or a rude error message, 

These words: "File not found."


Server's poor response 

Not quick enough for browser. 

Timed out, plum blossom. 


Chaos reigns within. 

Reflect, repent, and reboot. 

Order shall return. 

Wind catches lily 

Scatt'ring petals to the wind: 

Segmentation fault

First snow, then silence. 

This thousand dollar screen dies 

so beautifully.

With searching comes loss 

and the presence of absence: 

"My Novel" not found. 



The Web site you seek 

cannot be located but 

endless others exist 


Stay the patient course 

Of little worth is your ire 

The network is down

A crash reduces 

your expensive computer 

to a simple stone.

There is a chasm 

of carbon and silicon 

the software can't bridge

Yesterday it worked 

Today it is not working 

Windows is like that 


To have no errors 

Would be life without meaning 

No struggle, no joy 


You step in the stream, 

but the water has moved on. 

This page is not here. 



Out of memory. 

We wish to hold the whole sky, 

But we never will.

Having been erased, 

The document you're seeking 

Must now be retyped.

No keyboard present 

Hit F1 to continue 

Zen engineering?  


Serious error. 

All shortcuts have disappeared 

Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

I found these on Strange places.net
