” 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" 

How's that?

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?

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!

Haiku like you try!
Though its poets know it's so:
The mind's behind me.

He who hikes highest,
Has headaches hindering him.
Haikus hurt higher.

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 images
Of winter dreaming.

 

Haiku lets you go
To examine the strange things
That 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.

Why, thanks, MastaKink;

I like my last one. About how I "can't top it." Conversational.

I have a soft spot
For the one where I managed
To work in 'sub-lime.'

I got that from a
Lieder Eines Fahrenden
Gesellen
poem.

"Splanchnic Ganglion"
There's an unlikely phrase in
Autumnal haiku.

Oh - Lieder Eines
Fahrenden Gesellen
are
By Gustav Mahler.

Be of interest.

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.
