Google Search Haikus for GLAT

Category: Misc

GLAT Question No. 2
Write a Haiku describing possible methods for predicting search traffic seasonality.

I wrote these Search Haikus.
GLAT is an acronym for Google Labs Aptitude Test.

Searches spike reach their zenith
Fall like leaves on a forest floor
Keywords slowly to be replaced

Nature's fury brings people together
Search shrinks the world to a village
To find, help, and learn

A Haiku has to be in a 5-7-5 form. It is a 17 syllable verse form. If it isn't in a 5-7-5 form, it is a three liner, not a Haiku. (If I'm wrong, please correct me).

There's an interesting connection between a Haiku and the encryption code in Dan Brown's Digital Fortress. Have you read it? I haven't read the novel, but I've read parts of it. I've this habit of reading pages midway through.

Jhoomta aa raha hai kyun badal
Yeh bhi shayad koi sharabi hai
Chal mastana nazar gulabi hai

~ Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan

Why is the cloud swinging
He too seems to be a drunkard
Walk unconcerned, the sight's intoxicating
