View Full Version : Fun with haiku

January 18th, 2014, 09:56 AM
An old favorite
topic on another board
was a haiku thread.

Haikus can be fun,
serious, or humorous.
Let's get creative.

Respond back in five-
seven-five. Find your haiku
muse and start writing.

I am terrible
at coming up with haiku,
but for you, I'll try.

Haiku is not hard.
Don't be shy. Pull out a pen
and give it a try!

Here's an example
of a silly haiku (a
lighthearted attempt):

Moonlight flirting with
tree tops. The sound of rustling.
Zombies in the woods.

Chest left of center
Crimson stain wetly spreading
Leaking fountain pen.

Nighttime couch dog pile;
fog horns and sea lions trail in
on the cool sea breeze.

As if I have time.
You mock me! You give me grief!!
Nonetheless, it is.

January 24th, 2014, 06:53 PM
Nonetheless it is,
or is it not? Be that as
it may, it may not.

Two pens! They are here,
but the better is the worse
(as well, the reverse).

I kind of sort of
forgot all about this thread.
I'll zombify it.

I have to wonder.
If a zombie had a pen
Would it write with it?

Haiku are terse verse
which in short forms big ideas
or confuse people

Obsession for Delusion,

highway to one’s tragedy

turning life into comedy.

Desperate beavers
slipping around in the mud
while the press slings it

April 28th, 2014, 09:55 AM
the writing you see
it is not the real writing
til you put in ink

I haz cheezeburger
computer cat declared
while eating his mouse

O, baconator!
Laden with disgusting grease,
Mayo and rich cheese.

May 5th, 2014, 10:59 PM
I like back bacon
in sandwiches with cheddar
a taste to die for

May 6th, 2014, 03:45 PM
Oh, hey, pork belly.
Salty, tender, and juicy.
Get in my mouth, k?

May 6th, 2014, 05:06 PM
I want more bacon
to eat it and to wear it
like a Gaga dress

May 6th, 2014, 07:30 PM
O, baconator,
Gross me out with the mayo,
Retching with delight!

Looks like I started something. Glad the Mrs. doesn't read this forum.

'twas VertOlive, me so inspired
to tell that which my heart desired
was rendering of bacon fat
for me and to treat my cat
besides, Arnie jokes now are tired

oops, please ignore my previous post, it is rude, uncalled for, and of improper form.

I guess my low haiku shows, when I have to resort to the Irish form.

May 6th, 2014, 08:16 PM
I feel pleasantly regaled by your haiku.

May 7th, 2014, 02:53 PM
Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare
Or so they told me at school.
But I like Bacon.

coffee this morning
wakens my sleepy brain cells
raising my haiku

May 9th, 2014, 06:54 AM
Zombie brains waken,
rising in the night. They are

May 9th, 2014, 07:51 AM
Oh Lord please save me
Those damned zombies again
cause the death of me

May 9th, 2014, 07:56 AM
I swear i'll do it
poke in your eye with my pen
scrawl your death warrant

May 9th, 2014, 07:59 AM
warning, bad coffee
irritates bowel and mind
destroying my humour

May 9th, 2014, 08:07 AM
nor have I bacon
to eat with my eggs and toast
today avoid me

May 9th, 2014, 08:24 AM
Distemperate me
due to bitter noxious foul
Robusta coffee

May 9th, 2014, 08:40 AM
Scritch, scratch, scritchy scratch
It's not exactly music,
Copperplate writing.

May 10th, 2014, 01:59 AM
Haiku? What is it?
A verse with set syllables.
Why do we like it?

May 10th, 2014, 07:22 PM
is extemporaneous
cerebral failure

May 11th, 2014, 07:25 PM
Cute, very funny
Everywhere I see zombies
On Fountain Pen Geeks?

June 5th, 2014, 01:42 PM
I just found this thread.
I'll resurrect it again.
The zombie thread lives!

An old silent pond...
A frog jumps into the pond,
