A contest to replace the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft error messages with Haiku poetry messages led to the following beauties. (Some tiny editing done.)

(Formal Haiku poetry has strict construction rules: Each poem has only 17 syllables; 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line, 5 in the third line. They are used to communicate a timeless message, often achieving a wistful, yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity.)

Death, taxes and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.
David Dixon



Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.
Francis Heaney

Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.
Judy Birmingham


A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

So beautifully.
