The Haiku Thread

Sat Jun 25, 2011 7:36 pm

Let's see which of you
have the artistic talent
to write a haiku.

Five seven then five
syllables mark a haiku
remarkable oath.

These will be the rules:
write as many as you like
about anything.

Haikus are easy
but sometimes they don't make sense
refrigerator.

(Not haiku: if there is debate as to the wording, make a note of it. For instance, some would consider "different" to be said 'dif-rent' while others would say 'di-fe-rent'. Any way works fine as long as it meets the 5-7-5 count. No more, no less.

BEGIN!)

Too much thought required
with pounding head, hungover
to compose haiku

Why did you decide
to set this fiendish challenge
during the weekend?

leave it for weekdays
to tackle such a hassle
with full faculties

Quarks, so many kinds,
Up, down, top, bottom, charm, strange
Make up some matter.

Nutters write haiku
From various locations
Randomness abounds

Eating some ice cream
Vanilla swiss almond, yum!
What flavour for you?
But that was when I ruled the world

The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

I think I'd rather
See Whoopie Goldberg Naked
Than write a haiku

Count me the F*** out
Of this dumb exercise in
Word masturbation
