Title: Haiku maybe help? (now also with limerics!)
Post by: TheYak on 08 Jan 2003, 23:59
Here is much debate.
Many words but little said.
A fix in haiku?

Pointless posts no thought,
reply with e-motes or small,
when will madness end?

Here is precision.
Syllables are seventeen,
or less if you want.

This message is long,
but thorough I must be here.
Only haiku here!

Who knows where this goes?
All of gen-gen in haiku?
Yakspit is a dope.

I think it would help
But my haiku skills are poor
So I'll sit this out

I am tempted, though
To post cool biker haikus
From Full Throttle 1

i did haikus in class
i really did not like it
mine went just like this

damn, cant remember
but does it really matter
damn these syllables

Yakspit is cultured
this he has shown in this thread
I thank him dearly

Threads that are like this
are what this forum prospers on

Hai-ku How thou make?
Look online, copy, plagarise
Makes you look brilliant.

Edit [By my idiocy, I can't even adhere to simple syllable rules when talking about brains.  We'll better than the one word hiakus.  What were they trying to say in those?]

This is hardly zen
I had quite a long haiku
then: disconnected

my haiku is phat
it's totally gonna rock
cover your asses

this haiku ain't done
it's rocking in the new year
never gonna die

I just wanna say
this haiku is for all the
niggaz that be down

cause my momma said
knock you out, and i'm gonna
knock you out, rock on

oh yea, one word posts:
they suck, so doncha do that
you should know this, peace

hey ghormak you suck
think your haikus are better?
I will slaughter you.

I'd like to see it
you trying to haiku with
my foot in your ass
Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: evenwolf on 09 Jan 2003, 08:44
Scumm, Mean I Not Harm
But two of your lines above
Are too long in sound
Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: Ghormak on 09 Jan 2003, 08:47
Eric also errs.
The line that starts with "they suck..."
is a bit too long.

Eric, you bastard.
Don't you edit your haikus!
You make me look dumb!

As for fighting you,
do not be ridiculous.
I would hit you hard.

silly new people
dont know the hiaku power
reaches deep inside

fix wounds new and old
our tired bonds reforming
chris will cry in joy

Happy will be rest
when they wake they see hiaku
the board is restored
Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: MrColossal on 09 Jan 2003, 09:29
Ghormak let us rest
haiku is not ment for war
friendly we will be

we get along well
if i had extra sandwhich
to you it would go

remember the love
all those hardened balls of love
the moose do not war

no they do not war
they only desire more cows
and can you blame them
Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: Ghormak on 09 Jan 2003, 10:05
You speak words of truth.
The moose only wants more cow.
I cannot blame it.

If one moose yearns for
the same cow as another
fight is imminent.

Symbolic, fight is.
There is no actual hatred.
It's all in good sport.

(I wonder one thing,
the syllable-amount of
the word actual)

So yes, let us rest.
Fighting is not based on hate.
They do it for fun.

Post by: Trapezoid on 09 Jan 2003, 10:39
Once upon a time
Someone wrote a few haikus
Then he soiled himself

--------------------------

I am like a tree
When the lumberjack stops by
I cannot stay erect

--------------------------

I do not like beer
Spare me that conniving phoam
Carbonated piss

--------------------------

Sometimes fake acounts
(Captain Planet and Roger)
Make the forums fun

Others aren't as fun
like RPG Creator
and that CJ guy

--------------------------

Clowns are horrible
I met a clown at the fair
He exposed himself

I was traumitized
He claims it was a balloon
I know what I saw

Mother called the cops
We violently beat the clown
Someone filmed it all

Seven weeks later
There was an immense trial
Mom and I were jailed

Seven years later
We were finally released
But that clown walks free

'Tis never too late
To speak with only haiku
For great fun they are

Why do all haikus
End up with speech like Yoda,
Word order, reversed

Haikus are quite fun
Except if you don't know how
To make good haiku

Or you could copy
From Bart Simpson's Guide to Life
The guide to po'try

Note this clever skill
I have with apostrophe
Make six beats to five

I stop haiku now
I have no more words to say
My speech is quite done.

Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: Trapezoid on 10 Jan 2003, 01:40
I am bored by this...
I invent a new format.
I call it "Fahkyu"

It starts with a ten syllable sentence.
The next line's one syllable shorter.
And so on until you reach 1.
It's longer than a haiku.
Ergo, more expressive.
Unless you're stalling.
To reach the end.
Almost there...
Ready...!
There.

Personally, I
Enjoy hai-kus starring the

Like bunnies and deer
Or perhaps some sort of bird
Like a fat chicken.

Fat chicken in a

You are in the wrong

I pronounce it right
tis Ed-ju-cay-shi-on-nal
Say it slowly and hear

Can you hear it now?
Remember the syllables
are word parts, not sounds.

You say shio-on-nal
very fast and it sounds like
I am in the wrong

Pronounciation
is harder than it looks, yes?

Post by: bspeers100 on 11 Jan 2003, 00:25
I believe it is
modern readers who added
these rules to haiku.

few masters used the
"seventeen syllable" rule
no ancient artist

Since "enlightenment"
formalism has reigned supreme
the rules of writers

Still it can be fun
Revelry in written rules
perfection of words

perfection of choice--
words of ancient mastery
always was the way.

Today's translations
miss so much of the old words--
caligraphy too.

Below are some of my favourite old haikus--missing "red wheelbarrow" of course, on which so much depends--read them carefully, word by word and then line by line to get the full affect.  Only two authors come to mind.

BASHO

viewing the moon
no one at the party
has such a beautiful face

where's the moon?
as the temple bell is —
sunk in the sea

chrysanthemum's scent
in the garden a worn-out sandal
just the sole

without turning
into a butterfly, autumn deepens
for the worm

"I'm tired of kids."
for the person who says this
there are no flowers

lightning ~
into darkness plunges
   a night-heron's cry

SHIKI

wet feet
of a sparrow along
   the covered way ~

can be syllables of less
in lines not even

as long as less than
seventeen then it is good
but this way I like

Mr. C's Haikus
I enjoy them very much
gangsta haiku fly!

Haiku makes me pain,
yet torture I will endure.
Inferior skills.

Logic requir'ed
writing AGS scripting.
Lens flare==good game.

Andy Edmark big.
Andy Penis also big.
Glorious man-boobs.

it's M to the C
Zombie up in tha hizouse
best guard your grill, dog

people be sayin';
"Gangsta Haikus be the shit!"
let me school you some

Gangsta Haikus or
otherwise known as "G.H."
they are more than me

way back in the day
10,000 B.C., Japan
some whack shit went down

they had slaves and shit
slaves and monsters and Swamp Thing
but mostly the slaves

Japanese people;
"Writing haikus is hard! Slaves!"
Japan was lazy

So the slaves did it
G.H. came from the ghetto
(secret Japan ones)

so I keep it real
for all my oppressed brotha's
and oppressed sista's

this one's for you guys
to Yi Pin and to Chim Cham
peace out, sucka-san

I have the finest homebrew
It's called Pilsener

We've had other brews
from the Bitters to Lager
but this rules supreme

foam scent of flowers
has glorious tint of gold
carreses the tongue

kisses my tonsils
but then on her departure
leaves flavour of tea.

sweet of terran plane
Oh I embrace thee!

Zenful as it is
Haiku is no more than prose
With senseless format

On the other hand
I cannot freely write prose
Without senseless form

Be that as it may
Some people express themselves
With or without sense

Nevertheless
Expression is the best tool
With sense on your side


Despite all of this
I want to burst from my shell
And break the laws of form

Beware the police

If you break haiku

Five seven five
Only sylables aloud
Else you not haiku

Other forms are hard
I.E. Septerania
If I spelled that right

Certain number beats
Last words always changing 'round
It's hard to describe

Limmericks are hard,
With aliens from venus,
Often are naughty

I like the haiku
So even, never changing
So I'll stick to this

On snowy bridges
I stand alone with no warmth.
Hold me till summer.

A mouse creeps to me.
It is white as soft snowflakes.
I watch it run south.

Pretty mouse so soft,
Why did you leave me to die
In such a cold place?

When my spirit flies,
I will look over the fields
And see falling snow.

It looks beautiful.
Children play and build snowmen.
So damn innocent.

Stay that way, children.
Don't stand alone on a bridge
And die like I did.

Simplicity. War.

Do you think anyone,
anyone at all will care?
They will all be dead..

Nor can anything,
anything alter the path -
due to the suburb

Sacrifices are
still welcome, but only if
someone else does them

Is there anything
Belsebub can accomplish
that has not been done?

I guess not, yet still
a sense of hope in vast plains
a silver lining

Afterwards, chop chop
it is forgotten - faded -
dogs eat what is left

....Jesus died for you...
You've been cleansed by his blood to
become dazzling white.

On a tree He hung
With nails in His hands and feet
Because He loves you.

Search your heart and soul.
Do you feel the emptiness?
...Let His Love fill you...

When this is all gone,
And our lives just pass away,
Before Him you will kneel.

Confess Him as Lord
That you may come to know life
And not live in death.

There's so much to say...
Love the Father, Love the Son
Love the Holy Ghost.

And Love your neighbor
And the Love you seek, you'll find.
He's waiting for you...

The Eternal Love,
Peace, Blessings of Jesus Christ
be with you always.

You poor sons of whores.
Loud but loveless - powerless.
The truth lies deeper

Now eternal hell
brought upon man like
a rusty tin can

It will cut you up,
poison you with its content,
devour your soul

Shot with black popcorn.
Bleeding girlish hairstyles or
mnemonic intrails

Do not rely on
superstitious mocks
or divine beliefs

In the end, THE end,
You will stand alone, equipped
only with your wits

In the end, nothing,
NOTHING will matter but you!
You and your loved ones!

A solemn promise
and yet jack-knifed in your back..
Why not fuck it all!

Pretty words you speak;
Knowledge and wit you profess;
An empty battle.

The mind's a jester;
The heart is the warrior;
TAKE ARMS, MEN...WITH LOVE!

Lover or fighter;
A lover and a fighter;
Fight only with LOVE;

The LOVE from above;
Unending, unwavering
TRUE,  BEAUTIFUL LOVE.

The LOVE of Jesus,
be in your hearts, minds, and souls,
forevermore. Amen.

claim only godborne?

Man too makes many
wise thoughts, of love and hate. Sad

only know murder- sin.

I must here concede
The wanderer's prose is good
obsessed though she is

I can see the light
it shone in me long ago
empty words of men

have been put away
in favor of a good heart
God is in us all

Wiccan I am not
but similar in thought yes
find spirit in all

banging head against
a wall can seem like progress
until the head breaks

No enmity I
have for you or all the like
but redundancy?

Repetition is
the work of man I am told
like a scratched record

Ah, noble Yakspit,
One learns by repetition
Or one's art be null.

And mine I give thee.

Given from above.

If only it were
as simple as she can claim
her faith is not bad

love is, of course, nice
treating all with compassion
what a nice idea

this elixir, love
hope to all it may well bring
but there is a catch

too many speak of
this drink and then hand you a
drinking glass broken

this vessel of love
made by hand of man cannot
be therefore so pure

people point at me
there is a sinner in him
and they cast a stone

there are some that say
this is not what we declare
they lie from cold hearts

cynical I be
but my skin is thick only
by flames of the tongue

A question haiku
For all who have written here...
Who's used their fingers?


To all you lamers
who use fingers to type out,
for I used my nose.

For last night, carried
away went the girl with tight
straps keeping me bound.

The girl did leave when
ropes tight and wallet empty
No pants have I on....

So now here I sit
praying my friends come find me
'fore my parents do.

Jesus, Allah, Jehova

sublime and serene
filled his mind at this moment:
just some forgiveness

remembered the times
when as Fat Lolo fought with
Even, now good friend

good thread it was, zany
but flew away through past's gate -
destiny of all

where are the good games
AGS-made, long ago,
they gave you much joy

now only the words
on LGM's list he made -
this their asylum

now this is the same
with men who end on some lists
of dear deceased

no! memory still
the feelings they gave to you -
does this justify?

cheesy my words are
but I feel good writing them
thank you, bless this thread

A new generation here
to pick up the torch

whether all alone
or in joint projects maybe
new games will appear

I am very sure
that my dedication will
allow me a chance

to realize my dream
of making an adventure
out of my small head

a list of tasks first:
custom-paint a case for a
kid, like Yu-Gi Oh!

clean my damn-ed house
of the filth that the slobs leave.
And publish a book.

Then I hope I can
see my dreams soon brought to life.
but I forget script.

Negativity
Too hard to deal with proper.
I guess I can't help it,

I'm a failure at

When dementia
surrounds us, should we ask if
we are the sane one?

To question our mind
to compare with all others
This makes us robots

Crying is not weak
but question your sanity
if it's done daily

Within the confines
of a dark secluded place
eyes bitterly weep

they are all alone
crying for the bitterness
of love and hatred

they are all alone
crying for passion and lust
envy and revenge

evil is the heart
which made these eyes start weeping
no one hears its pleas

happy is the face
which the world avidly views
it always will smile

grieving are the eyes
who the world does detest
they find no solace


that is my haiku
I will try harder next time
I will use action

Haiku is not

But I think

You do too!

I'm serious here
trying to learn
Haiku... shit I'm going to burn!

Haiku I'm trying to learn
today. But I'm not able to to this
before upcoming wednesday.

I found this dummies for Haiku's
and I'm not that good
But I'll give it a try, with other words.

*** edit ***
I don't undertand
the meaning of Haiku
either.

It says it needs
five, seven, and five
but I see some using more or less

So this is what
I don't understand
Haiku rules? What's that again?
Title: Re:Haiku maybe help?
Post by: Dmitri on 01 Apr 2003, 12:40
ignore the lamers
who do not abide the rules
five seven and five

This thread's surprising;
It brings out poets in all.
We are teh clevar.


When I think "haiku"
I think of Broken Sword 2.
There's a guy named that.

He's a crap actor
Who gets to play a pirate,
But George shows him up

Climbs up the pillar,
Finds treasure of Captain Ketch,
Treats us to cut-scene.

That game is quite good,
Not as good as BS1.
BS3 will rule.

I've got off-topic.
But then, in this thread, who cares?
This haiku is done.

Last night was a blast
Cricket Presentation night
I got so Hammered

Picked up best bowler
For my team, trophy I got
Many drinks drunk I

Though I got a big
SURPRIZE, most unexpected.
More drunk drinks did

PLAYER OF THE YEAR
For the Whole Club, Large Trophy
Free drunks drinkededed

I Was Stunned, Shocked, Stoked,
Over the moon, Looney Tune,
Pissed as a maggot.

Unbelievable,
Moments like these are so rare,
Has not sunk in yet.

Time has come again,
when the Haiku may make ties

On the other hand,
olbies and newbies just may
battle forever.

Gen Gen conflicted;
Oldies boast maturity;
Harmony ruined.

Hopeful horizon?
Solutions have been proposed...
But is outlook grave?

Once friendly forum,
divided into factions;
The dumb and the smart.

Still active forum,
Jetisoned from existence;
Simply thrown away.

Options seem quite dire;
Neither would be pleasant;
Does a third exist?

Yes, indeed it does.
These haikus came far too late;
The best I could do.

This all sounded poo;
Opinion obscured by structure;
Bang goes my two cents.

make any old rubbish seem
utterly profound?

One two three four five
Once I caught a fish alive

Never thought that haikus
Could be so much addictive
Hence no posts in thread

Today is the first
Day i have looked in this thread
Thoughts of Haikus changed

I look at page count
And decide it's time to check out
What all the fuss is

Well haikus are fun
And easy i must say now
For i'm writing here

May this thread never die
Cos it is so long and cool
Would be a crying shame

Maybe i should go study
For my HSC trials
Are on tomorrow

Havnt studied enough
But i am lazy and dont
Feel like it right now

But mum gets angry
And shouts, for my lack of study
Oh well, i must go

May this thread live on
And live to a ripe old age
Of 1000 posts.

Just So You Know

Only the Japanese system adheres
to counts of syllabics in words.
It is a precise image and idea in simple form
which defines the Haiku.

In the Chinese style I might say:

The sky was once empty but for sparse birds.

Title: Re: Haiku maybe help?
Post by: SpacePirateCaine on 02 Sep 2004, 07:39
Japanese haiku
adhere to quite stringent rules.
But they're not too hard.

Traditionally,
five, seven, five, and that's it.
No more and no less.

Also, there's Tanka
five, seven, five, seven, then
another seven.
They are longer, but not much.
Just enough for one more thought.

The 'ku' in haiku
means a statement or a phrase.
where 'ka' means "a song"

About "Nihon-go",
It's a language of rythm.
one letter, one beat.

I speak, as you know
of the Japanese "Kana":
Phoenetic letters.

However, you see,
A true haiku should really
pertain to nature.

It's known as 'Kigo'
A reference to the season
the haiku takes place.

The season theme is
what makes a haiku "haiku".
without, it's just talk.

Not to say that one
Haiku is better than most,
just 'cause of the theme.

And lastly, by me,
A haiku I wrote last year,
Under my penname.

Aki no Matsu.
Ga, momiji wa mada,
ochinu mama.

(The end of autumn.
Yet the colorful fall leaves,
remain unfallen)

It is a pity,
The forum does not support
text in unicode.

The Web site you seek
Can not be located, but
Countless more exist.

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Program aborting
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask far too much.

Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

Three things are certain
Death, taxes and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

Out of memory.
We wish to hold the whole sky,
But we never will.

Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.

I ate your Web page.
Forgive me; it was tasty
And tart on my tongue.

not to write haikus.

This man is a jerk

His point isn't that you can't make fun of it; it's rather that joke haikus aren't haikus at all. They're three-line things that follow one single restriction that not even Bashō adhered to (the syllable length), rather than the many other more important things that make haikus haikus.

If I write a sonnet with
A random number of lines,
No meter and no rhyme,
And only line breaks
To make it look like poetry:
Am I cleverly parodying
William Shakespeare?

Still, though, so desperately writing a long essay begging for the joke haiku to be completely eliminated is a bit harsh. It can be pretty convenient to have a form for humorous verse that takes no effort to follow.

I for one welcome

Poems made easy!

for the following:

A sublime art form,
thoroughly misunderstood,
as the haiku is.

But I doubt we'll claim
to be the peers of Basho.
There's no harm in it.

There are benefits:
When counting the syllables,
You think first, then talk,

even though there's more
that makes real haiku haiku.
There's no harm in fun.

Still, I think you all

Yes

He just wants to tell
people about what a haiku
really is, and how the true form is more complicated than (and indeed different from) what we Westerners are taught in school.

And that's just lovely.
But he's much too aggressive,
so he pretty much fails miserably in getting his point across, and ends up angering people instead, QED.

Lim'ricks I can write
So let us make the switch now
Andail, good ide'.

There once was a haiku thread
Everyone thought it was dead
To my suprise
It caught my eyes
And through it all I read


 ;D

There once was a poet in Hong Kong
Who thought Limericks were too long...




(you know, folks, just like a haiku is supposed to be 5/7/5 syllables, a limerick is supposed to  have meter... three dactyls, three dactyls, then two, two, and then three; usually that's close to 9/9/5/5/9 syllables).

Lim'ricks we now write
Or we'll all have to fight

And it contains an eclectic morass

The return of that Canadian lass

Oft found she had to dump it
She had to poo
But so do you
She took this thread and bumped it

Monkey, your lim'rick
Has made me feel quite sick
All your talk of poo
Has made me say ew
In your head you must be quite thick

 ;D

Monkey is being a jerk
Says that my lim'ricks don't work
"Syllables are wrong,
Those words don't belong.."
One day I'll just go berserk  >:(

 Should Duelnames
Take the blame
Is it his fault
this thead ground to a hault
or is it this silly game?

I dream in riddles
that make me laugh in my bed
but don't get awake

What form of po'try was that?
It spoke to me of dead cat.
Let's blame Dualnames
For stopping the game
And hit something with a rat.

Dead cats are not like
Your poetry, lo_res_man.
Naught else would rhyme, sorr'

Avast ya lubbers
death has come
do not blaim
cause it's come undone

I fear my life
is a little mad
stop this game at once
it makes me sad

do not think
I cannot rime
i can speak
like a mime

Post by: monkey0506 on 25 Oct 2007, 21:23
There's more to haiku
Than just speaking words that rhyme:
Must follow pattern!

But enough syllables for limerick
I must say that here you have not writ!
Though your words may rhyme
They must fit the time,
Unless you confirm them all as sh[.]t.

Apparently SilverTrumpet doesn't recognize "sh[..]" so I'll add the 't' back to the end. Maybe now she'll be able to figure it out. If not I guess I'll just have to uncensor myself.

Monkey:

Remember our talk:
"Count your syllables next time"?
F-thirtyfour-are

The above relates to this:
You said my po'ms were amiss.
Now follow your speech
Practice what you preach
And keep the rhyth-I'm-ic bliss

 :P ;D

Edit: Definately got what you were sensoring,
especially because it rhymes with some of your previous lines.

Edit-the-second: Please don't be so patronizing.

My dear friend lo_res_man
I have an int'resting plan
Stop being with dead cats
They don't make good floor mats
...Cause we're both Canadian

(I don't know what that had to do with it, but I thought it would be nice to recognize the shared nationality)

I'm not anti-fan
But if you talk to dead cats
You are a strange guy

While out on the Cam in a punt
I saw my nemesis in front
I tried to attack
fell flat on my back
and he escaped, the stupid old curmdgeon

It was but in jest
I don't mean to be a pest
put dead cats to rest
 *sweeps hat off and bows extravagantly*
Yes fair Madonna,
lets leave off this silliness
let us get to writing

In the tattered depths of evening
my lady was grieving
"I said he must return,
by next suns turn,
or this world I am leaving"

schrodingers was both
dead and alive his cat was
and all things can die

 
and yes I write normally, I have an account on
Elfwood
 (http://www.elfwood.com/libr/j/s/jsinc86/jsinc86.html/) that I very occasionally post some trite.
please check it out one and all, no comments is a depressing state of being.
 sorry if my poetry is a tad depressing, that last limerick was an attempt to write a 'dramatic' limerick, due to the fact that nearly all limericks are meant to be of a humorous nature.
