Do you think this is the best?
When i read Haiku,
I lost my french.
Haiku from me.
I might have known that this would be one of lackadaisy’s!
The only type of poetry that I attempt on a semi-regular basis.
Don’t ask why. I don’t know.
"I't's strange, but penning
haiku on summer mornings
brings an inner peace"
The rain falls bleakly
Past the window where a bird
sits; its feathers fluffed.
The sun shines briefly
Ere setting beneath the sea
Crimson; night descends.
The wind rustles leaves
But cowboys rustle cattle;
Isn't language odd?
Haikus are silly. They are short, and say little. Why even bother?
Hideous MonsterHits the nail right on the headWith his great haiku
No, really, finrod. That Haiku was a mistake. I really hate them.
This conversation seems capable of running for quite a long time!
Long conversations are my speciality. Short comments are not.
Me too – that's quite true. And especially in summer, before the leaves fall.
Haikus take some time, when you try to make them rhyme. Still they are sublime.
So are the leaves of the lime tree in autumn, when they become sub-lime.
One wonders whether We will waste weeks waging war With whimsical words.
Ha! It does evoke upset mood – or no settled errors!
I must abandon all hope if ever I get to follow Dante.
Ho! He who haikus has wholly honoured Homeric hephthemimer.
Damn you guys are good!
I must reiterate that.
Damn you guys are good!
Purple octopus...I've often had imagesOf winter dreaming.
Haiku lets you goTo examine the strange thingsThat torture the soul.
I used my best stuff early in this discussion. Now I can't top it.
"Japanese is a language famous for its moraic qualities. Most dialects, including the standard, use moras (in Japanese, onji) as the basis of the sound system rather than syllables. For example, haiku in modern Japanese do not follow the pattern 5 syllables/7 syllables/5 syllables, as commonly believed, but rather the pattern 5 moras/7 moras/5 moras. As one example, the Japanese syllable-final n is moraic, as is the first part of a geminate consonant. For example, the word Nippon ('Japan' in Japanese) has four moras (NI-P-PO-N)"-wiki
Yes, we were unlikely to be able to keep outdoing each other. The one further back where the initial letters of each syllable spell out H-I-D-E-O-U-S-M-O-N-S-T-E-R nearly drove me round the twist.
Damn you guys got mad skillz!!
A tiger can smileA snake will say it loves you Lies make us evil
I like my last one. About how I "can't top it." Conversational.
I have a soft spotFor the one where I managedTo work in 'sub-lime.'
I got that from aLieder Eines FahrendenGesellen poem.
"Splanchnic Ganglion"There's an unlikely phrase inAutumnal haiku.
Oh - Lieder EinesFahrenden Gesellen areBy Gustav Mahler.
rays of sun went in
caught my eye, grey as the sky
and blew smiles away.
haiku is the best way of poetry. I think. Because it`s really hard to create a really good haiku. Then must say a lot with a few words. It`s art. you can`t just know how many syllable you must write, its not everything. You must feel something. you must feel everything.
Ha. I love haiku.
Haikus are about nature!
The door has opened
Fudge muffins alone
Nervousness can kill a man
German Chocolate Cake
A Language alone
Those nature centered haikus
are missing something...
leaves room for love story angst
Tales of clipper ships
