    Traditionally, no. I do not believe that haiku generally rhyme. They are quite subtle, and are only "poems" in the sense that there are constraints placed upon the meter (not constraints, exactly...but I digress), and follow a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

    It is optional.

    With five seven five
    Syllable lines, it is hard
    To find any rhyme.
    NICE!

    Smokelaw is correct
    In Haiku definition.
    It is so simple.

    There is a type of perfection that transcends the quest for lumens. Buying a $250 1-cell light for "lum factor" is like buying a $250 single malt Scotch for the alcohol content.

    I'm looking at some of your post counts, and feel like the new guy on the block. Worry not, if I am fortunate enough, it will have a good home.

    The inspiration
    For this light has spread throughout
    The dimly lit world!


    The Haiku will make
    The whole world a brighter place
    I'm so excited!


    I love the new look
    Of the ribbed titanium.
    What could be better?

    Don,

    I'm curious to know how the McR-17XRreflector was chosen over the McR-19XR? Was the choice for the McR-17XR due to limitations in the head geometry? Or, was there a specific reason for this choice? It seems that the cooling fins were a priority to this build, and thus allowed only enough room for the smaller reflector (while keeping a 1" OD).

    Cheers!

    The fins on the head look very nice.

    Hi Joel,

    Actually there were so many reasons to use the 17XR that the 19XR wasn't even considered. For starters, I have a personal preference for the 17-XR over the 19XR and it is based on a number of considerations having to do with geometry but of prime import, I think it has a slightly better viewing angle than the 19-XR; especially when its small diameter also allows me to give it much better egress when limited to the 1" OD. The head geometry did have a significant impact and the mating and thermal needs of the light engine are also related. The deep cooling fins were a bonus allowed because I had opted to use the 17-XR. After modeling the assembly in SolidWorks, I realized I could go deep between the fins and I did. I half expected some grief from the machine shop on this but beyond being told they needed to purchase a different cutter than they had so that they could do the one deep groove, there was no issue or complaint.

    I think for the most part, my lights are designed from the inside out. I decide what I want the "guts" to be and then work outwards from there.

    I caught a nice picture of a friendly wave today:
