Book as a haiku?

As a part of this Orangeberry Summer Splash virtual book tour (and a chance to win a free Kindle, btw---if you are on Twitter, hash tags are #OBSummer #Books) one of the participating authors had the great idea of summarizing one of our books in a haiku (three-line Japanese poetry form of 5-7-5 syllables.)

 color in strange places, I
 look up; no one sees 

 It's much harder than it looks, and I'm still not thrilled with my version. There are a lot of other great haikus at his site:
