    Default Haiku Club!

    Join the haiku club today! It's really easy if you don't already know: Haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Like so:

    This is a haiku.
    omg that was easy.
    A haiku, this is.


    That was just an example. Now that I am warmed up, here is my virgin haiku. See if you can top it!

    Sun, ice is melted.
    trickle to babble to rush,
    a river is born.

    Words don't always come.
    I'll use the emoticons!
    , an inside joke.



    Passion plays in love
    Honey, it'll kill the mood
    WAAAAA! for twenty years.



    Unfolding white rose
    Clip. Snip. Bouquet with a bow,
    hanging on death's door.



    Ask about our screens
    for osteoporosis.
    (Canes and crutches sold.)



    I bought a black dress.
    Who knows what tonight will bring
    besides the morning!

    A trip to mouse land,
    The boys are so excited
    So why can’t I sleep?

    Chosen one, is he
    Balance to the force, brings he
    A swamp, I’m stuck in

    Bearer of bad news,
    Can visit at any time
    His grief never ends

    (inspired by this week's Time article)

    I just re-read some of the posts on another thread - there are a lot of Haiku's over here:

    Default for my uncle

    yellow tail breathed bass
    on the long river we blossomed
    he's the trout now, perched.

    Deep in Blue Dog's eyes will always lurk the hopes and longings of a melancholy people, but, like the Cajuns, who always trained their eyes on the future, Blue Dog must move forward.

    One, two, dang, I'm lost.
    Must salmon home. Hey, no comfort.
    Wasn't home in first place. Splish.

    Sip miso demurely, friend
    On sleek lake, a clue.
