Suspicion is out
still one more thing I must do
it's like a present

At this time of year
I like to celebrate with
ev'ry festival

Celebrate the great
Maccabean revolt by
doing Haikunnukah

Bears diving for fish

Without protective head gear

Hit head on creek bed

Bears make mess of their purses

Honey on bear paw!

On this holiday
Spirit of Christmas is here!
Haiku is needed

Try Not to Breathe - coming sooner or later!

We may have years, we may have hours, but sooner or later, we push up flowers. - Membrillo, Grim Fandango coroner

I have bumped this thread
Moderators hate me now?
Will death come find me?

Big sore on my face
Will it drain itself all out?
Ha ha I made joke

Bad thing is afoot:
I can't find my room keys
Where else can I look? :(

Yes except you messed up the first line...it should be like this:

What the hell's haiku,
And why are people talking
Weird and annoying?

To express oneself
In seventeen syllables
Is very diffic-

Smiled on and not frowned on here?
Haikus for all time!

I just wish that we
could change to some other verse
meter like sonnets

or pentameter
in iambs, or anapests
or even lim'ricks...

haiku gets boring
after 43 pages
agreed?*

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

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).
