Thread: Haiku

  1. #1

    Default Haiku

    They think they are smart
    Dissenting orgers will soon
    Go off to org jail



    I hope Haiku 'fans' will follow up on this with more and much better.

    Could be wrong you see
    but this simple song for ye
    could be my last.

    Scottish haiku.
    In the image of God? You must be joking!

    I hope you aren't right
    With your so solemn reply
    We need you to stay

    Default Haiku

    A simple oldtimer
    Bad ryhmer
    One Liner
    Nothing finer.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~





    They never fail
    To moan and wail
    At lack of email
    When sent to org.jail.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    "The haiku originates from Japan.

    How To Write Haiku

    The haiku is a very simple form of writing. So think many poets exposed to this verse for the first time. The more perceptive of them soon realise that it can in reality be rather difficult. A casual glance at magazines or web pages will often show a wealth of examples, good, bad and indifferent. On asking further the poet usually gets told that haiku are traditionally written in three lines of 5-7-5 syllables. They may also be told that all haiku include a "season word" (kigo) to indicate the time of year to which the haiku relates. For a beginning this might do."

    So, an example might be like this -

    rain drops keep falling
    rivers flow swiftly, seawards
    to make us more rain

    though "season" isn't mentioned.

    Are the rules 'hard and fast' as regards form? Probably not anymore, but applying them does make haiku writing more of an inspiring challenge.

    I don't know who wrote it but it was sent to me long ago and I love it -

    ERROR MESSAGES

    First snow, then silence.
    This thousand dollar screen
    Dies so beautifully.

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

    That which you seek
    Cannot be located
    But endless others exist.

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

    Aborted effort:
    Close all that you have.
    You ask far too much.

    With searching comes loss
    And the presence of absence;
    "My Novel" not found.

    A file that big?
    It might be very useful.
    But now it is gone.

    You are attempting a journey
    Along a muddled path
    File Not Found.

    The Tao that is seen
    Is not the true Tao until
    You bring fresh toner.

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

    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.

    Windows NT crashed.
    I am the Blue Screen of Death.
    No one hears your screams.
    The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

    What an old pedant you are!!!! But we bask in your erudition and learn from your wisdom. I always thought 14 but you are right it is 17. I will write my haikus correctly in future.
    In the image of God? You must be joking!

    Aren't I just? Comes of not being smart and flexible/adaptable so 'stick-in-the-mud-old-me just keeps with the old ways, thus making me a traditionalist I suppose.
    However, sticking to the old rules makes it more of a challenge and therefore more stimulating.

    It seems this to me
    With cold bare trees around us
    We should watch our step.

    It seems this to me
    With the coldness of winter
    We should wrap up warm

    (And thanks for the starter from the previous posting).

    In jail for our sins
    The frost will sharply bite us
    We must then take care.

    And then we get out
    And we rejoin our org friends
    Are we repentant?

    To repent means guilt
    the bright sun of innocence
    shines upon me now.

    We three who must write
    When the first snow is falling
    Will share the same cell

    Summer's almost gone
    Soon leaves will be falling
    To the ground again
    I am living for today, always remembering yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow!

    Summer days will fade
    And autumn's golden glory
    Will colour our world

    Not season related but true (for many) nevertheless

    The hoover sits in
    its own little cupboard space
    gathering much dust

    Sparkling dewdrops on a spider's web
    Autumn's here
    And summer's dead.
