The Haiku Game
« on: December 03, 2002, 04:08:20 pm »
In Great Honour of a "Kallisti", the eclectic Le Elohm, I endeavour to continue the thread in Principia!

A ......5, 7, 5, format,  to include a "next topic" post!

Goes like this........

Across the valley
Grey misty vapours pour in.
Yorkshire Fog descends.


Next topic.......Mountains.

Atop the plateau
the sound of man does not reach.
I recline in peace

I hope that one's good.  I'm a little rusty on haiku.

Next topic is the firmament, the ether, space, or what word you use for what envelops this place

Gee, left me an easy topic there, didn't you?  :shock:

In the vast, dark void,
a peanut-butter cookie
is better than air


Yes, I am rusty with the old haiku as well... Next topic:

"Farm Equipment"
Well, shit.

Spring is in the air
She said, as the clouds above
began to leak down.

Yes, that's bloody terrible, sorry.

Let's try this haiku thing...

Five bottles of rum
Ten joints full of top-notch weed
I fear the morning

next topic: Fire
When I was a little man
Playdough came in a little can
I was Star Wars' biggest fan
Now I'm stuck without a plan
GI Joe was an action man
Shaggy drove the mystery van
Devo was my favorite band
Take me back to my happy land

His hand hits the stove,

He's stronger than fire!

Dough-faced pizza man,
your cheeks rise like baking bread.
Your grin is a knife.

A head of marble
A wintry white sentinel
Eyes that cannot see.

Sorry, didn't mean to kill the haiku game!  I'll change the "Next Topic" to:  your choice.
