The Haiku Thread


Recommended Posts

Anyone ever write haiku? I find it's fun to wedge your creativity into such a tight structure. It's kind of like an A&R guy telling you, "Play anything you want...but your tune has to end exactly at three minutes and four seconds, and it has to have two verses and three choruses, with a repeat at the end." Hey, wait...they [i]do[/i] say that. Never mind. Anyway, here's a quicky that I'll whip out right now: The forums are slow; I sigh and sip my coffee while the page loads in Well, that sucked. But if you want a primer on how to do haiku, here's one: http://www.toyomasu.com/haiku/ Wanna give it a try? Post one here! - Jeff

Bin Laden is mad. We all wait for the attack. Goodbye to our bridge? Anthrax in the mail. If I am afraid of bills, Must I still pay them? We're all on "alert"! Are we really ready now? Or just more afraid. guitplayer... (coo coo haiku) [ 11-02-2001: Message edited by: guitplayer ]

The first and third lines have five syllables each; the second, seven. Sometimes a 5/7/3 pattern is used, also. A haiku is meant to be elegant and insightful, a distillation of great wisdom into a very short verse - kind of a Japanese version of the fortune cookie. ;) Stylin' means "to wear fashionable clothing; to dress well." I don't understand that thread, either. Hasta pronto, Su amigo de Nueva Jersey [ 11-03-2001: Message edited by: dansouth@yahoo.com ]

[quote][b]Stylin' means "to wear fashionable clothing; to dress well." I don't understand that thread, either.[/b][/quote] Stylin' is a state Of skill beneath the surface Of appearances. Kung Fu is a state Of skill beneath the surface Of appearances. As Stylin' is such As Kung Fu is so much as A kind of haiku. The thread is as such An expression of Stylin' As of it's Kung Fu. Therefore the Kung Fu Of which you may be Stylin' Will reflect on you. Ask not which is what Between Stylin' and Kung Fu May reflect on you Reflection is One Kung Fu and Stylin' is Two And the rest is You [i](A 5/7/5 haiku)[/i] E :)
