    Sun

    Our Sun is a star.
    And unlike where most stars are,
    It’s not very far.


    Yep, a rhyming haiku! More rhyming haiku here. 8)

    Hey did you know that the X-Factor has pre-show auditions? And you only get through if your good, or if you're bad. Those auditions are before national television. So they are finding bad people on purpose? How sad, then again I only watch it for those type of singers . They're more entertaining than the ones that can sing.

    99% of what comes out of pop idol, american idol, x-factor and the likes is musical dandruff - because Simon Cowell and his rotten audience wouldn't recognise proper music if it bit them in the bum
    and the contestants are sheep, led to the slaughter house of musak, rather than make their own way on their own initiative

    Too much temptation
    And too much moderation
    Both yield frustration.

    Approaching solstice
    Gives opportunity for
    Right form of haiku.

    Shouldn’t haiku include a reference to season?

    Life is like the Seasons

    Childhood spring turns to
    Summer's youth, middle-aged fall
    And wintry old age.

    theres no such thing:

    as potential
    when were going where we have always been
    we look back just to see the end

    as observing
    scattered collections
    they awaken you to a dream

    as an expected surprise
    yet seen beyond the hill is home
    to find it we rise and fall
    Dick, be Frank.

    My little haikus: Suporna C. - 2009

    I have done God's work.
    I close my eyes, exhausted.
    I have saved a life.


    See the blackened sky,
    Hear the silent cry of death...
    Welcome to our world.


    Do you know our names?
    We are nobody's children.
    We are stars on earth.


    Mark my words, young beast,
    One day, the river of blood
    Shall sweep you away.

    anyone want to try to write a haiku story?

    I'll start it, if anyone wants to continue please do, feel free to do a few at a time to get the story going

    ***

    Wind and waves collide
    fighting over our lives,
    Which will claim us?

    The green turn inside out
    The wise hold on tight
    Everything's upside down

    Darkness, cold and moans
    a plank, to love and hold
    shadows circle beneath

    ***
    Dick, be Frank.

    Story continued:

    The foam suffocates
    The few who are still alive.
    Where are their gods now?


    A single flashback
    Of a warm, sunlit valley...
    And then it is gone.

    Our salty tears fall
    Unnoticed into the sea.
    Our hands start to slip.

    from the east shines
    a single ray of light
    one multiplies and awakens

    the sharks are gone, full
    from a long night's feast
    few men hold on barely in one piece

    "hark! Garuda" one call's...
    No, just the fog,
    and a seagull's caw...
    Dick, be Frank.

    Shivering wretches;
    Arms and legs begin to cramp.
    Hypothermia.

    Lips start to turn blue,
    Breathing becomes much harder...
    Death is approaching.

    To the first, weak man
    Death comes as his little boy.
    The man leaves with glee.

    To the younger man,
    Death is his golden sweetheart,
    So he leaves, content.

    To the last old man,
    Death comes as an old, good friend.
    And then there are none.

    waves are memories
    reoccurring lullabies
    dreams un-becoming

    New Haiku Story!

    The monster rises;
    Its bloodred eyes burning with
    Consuming hatred.

    With a raspy cry,
    Unbeknownst to passerby,
    He shall destroy all.

    The sky is burning;
    Flaming towers made of glass
    Crash to the charred ground.

    Demons take the place
    Of all the writhing humans...
    Wicked is the night.

    Suporna C. - 2009

    A Haiku, as Tritai has filled me in on, is a three line poem, of 5,7,and 5 syllables per line respectively. I didn't know there was a rule to the syllables, so much of my above haikus are not actuall haikus, the are just free style poems.

    The easiest way for me, is to propose an idea with the first line, expand on or detail the idea with the second, then sum it up or conclude it with the last.

    I don't know much about the theory behind Haiku, but I'm sure you can do a search and find a lot of info on them.
