The great thing about the internet is that you can find anything. Like today I thought, you know, somebody must have written some silly little program to generate haikus. Took all of 30 seconds to find out that there are 229,000 supposed haiku generators out there in cyberspace. Here's what one of them can do:

rivers quarrel, soft
ragamuffins flee moistly
forcefully, fruit rains

lemonpeel exalts
bright crafty poltergeist sobs
beehive vanishes

wintertime purrs, rude
rough ignored piglet forgets
cheaply, gingko moans

No match for Basho:

Winter rainfalls
on the cow-shed;
a cock crows.

Basho quotes:

There is nothing you can see that is not a flower; There is nothing you can think that is not the moon.

Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
