    Lol. I like your rules specially as they democratize reading. In Germany, they have that, but at a more modest scale I learned from some friends. They have public bookcases there: people separate regularly books they donīt want any more and shelve them there and take other books they want home.

    My going digital isnīt quite voluntary. I loved my books, but I got an insect problem and never got quite rid of it. And so I got used to digital reading. Plus, importing physical books to my country has become complicated.

    The empty room ( damaged haiku)

    Here am I, sitting
    in a room without shelves.

    Solitude then

    We have tiny neighborhood lending libraries too (kiosks?), outside on corners here and there. Our local library accepts books which they either leave outside to take, or arrayed in a $1.00 USD room, with CD's too (I picked up a book for $1.00 on Eternal Life from many perspectives at our last poetry event )

    march winds

    winds shriek through the pines
    like wraiths marching through graveyards
    in search of lost souls

    unexpectedly

    re:Two inches of snow at the end of March!

    Lovely Sunshine!
    Birds and dogs delight in song
    Humans moon away.

    Enjoyed!That must be the cinema snow.

    Sounds

    Birds greet the cold dawn
    From much afar, hammering
    Day opening wings!

    Soft morning breeze.
    Fur all spread on window in front.
    Cat basking on sill.

    lol... enjoyed.

    I have started another pspsps that needs a little more refining before making its debut as a 5-7-5 Haiku; the following is in the raw 5-6-5, and maybe its final form... and since you have pspsps 2 I'll title mine with pspsps 3 :

    pspsps 3

    comfy furniture
    now shredded hand me downs
    cat tree looks better

    Lol!

    A Tragic Fate (pspsps 4).
    A new brown sofa
    cat paws busily at work,
    Couch burned on place!

    AAII! Canīt imagine a squirrel scolding. Met one only once, very tame eating nuts from my hand in the Central Park-NY.

    After the storm

    A feeble sunshine
    Park, dogs, barks, puddles.
    Life's resumed.
