Does it count if brain
Hurtyness prevents haikus

Insomnia Strikes
Half conscious, incoherent

Post by: akashayi on March 19, 2009, 03:06:40 am
I have two kittens
Licking each other on my
cold and unused bed

Furry mass of love
Relaxing until one cat
Sneezed on the other
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown

Your last Haikus might
be misconstrued by people
with certain "fancies"
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: akashayi on March 19, 2009, 11:16:11 am
Cute kittens
in no way resemble your
yiffing furry porn

"Too much info" means
Someone said something you can't
Erase from your brain

Post by: akashayi on March 19, 2009, 12:40:46 pm
Oh, Ronin Angel
The haiku format is strict
Check your syllables

Quick Reminder then,
It's three counted lines of verse,
five, seven and five.

That which has been seen
Can never then be unseen
The nets know this well.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: RoninAngel on March 19, 2009, 12:45:01 pm
Fixed.

give the needed five
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: akashayi on March 19, 2009, 12:50:48 pm
how did that get through?
no sleep and no play makes for
a brain dead kashi

Cute kitten cuddles
in no way resemble your
yiffing furry porn
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Pozf on March 19, 2009, 12:56:45 pm
Much better sleepy
one must make sure to keep the
"Haiku" filter on

It was not my mind
that put your kittens actions
to that of the pr0ns

Could it possibly
be that you wished it be such?
psychology go!

It takes 3 or more
Hours to fall asleep. Oi!
Insomnia right?

Or maybe it  is
something else, either way this
makes Pozf sleepy.

Does this sound like fun?
It is not, Pozzy deprived.

See what I did there?
With rhyme, not that you would care,
I add skillful flair.

I'll put you to shame.
Your vanity, I will tame.
Trust me, I've got game.

Is that so, Sushi?
Then i have some news for you,
haikus need no rhyme.

Show simplicity,
no need to make two ends meet.
Just a phrase to read.

Two sides of a coin,
a story, untold for us,
becomes clear when known.

Talk about summer,
or spring, if it suits your life,
but winter is mine.

A place to relax.
To read, share and all be one.
Who wants to be first?

Post by: the1truesushiboy on July 26, 2011, 11:38:21 pm
True, rhyme is needless.
I merely use it for show,
To express my knack.

But let us see then,
What can be fabricated,
as a true haiku.

Something of nature,
then a counter point to it,
then the conclusion...

But you chose winter,
as a subject all your own.
How disheartening.

It would be mine too,
but I'll honor it, the same.
I'll choose something else.

Strikingly serene,
The thunderous tempest rain.
Ambivalent calm.

Then let's share haikus,
instead of fighting with them.
No master needed.


As cold as winter,
is the fire in our souls.
Warm feeling indeed.

There was a river
In a now flooded forest.
Through death, new life grows.

taking our topics?
then my topic is of bliss
I'll discuss beauty

Beauty, that of calm...
Beauty, that of the peace...
In beauty, is bliss.

A pale stone in sand
It is without a purpose
but it has meaning

no use comes of it
no use but to be itself
it's beautiful

perfect in it's way
it is subtle, beautiful,
in it's way... perfect.

all it is, is good
not destructive, good, or bad...
just a blissful stone.

in the shadows it creates,

The theme, by the way,
I have decided upon,
Is that of water.

Flourishing cascade,
perpetually renewed,
Unchanging downfall.

Oceans, Violent,
Appear tranquil at the edge,
Pretending safety.

A caressing touch.

Rain, rain, go away.
Come again another day;
A day I'm awake.

crashing waves on sand
corrupt a land, and make it.
take it, by the hand.

The temperature,
and the moisture in the air,
IS UNBEARABLE!

I'd have made better,
but the heat's getting to me.
I felt like ranting.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on July 30, 2011, 07:07:00 pm
if the heat 'gets' you
you must accept it's comfort.
Warmth is comforting.

I preffer the cold,
dry, chilling and crude coldness.
I'm freezing right now.

Cold is far better.
The refreshing chill of ice
Far surpasses warmth.

not 'better,' but 'good.'
there is no competition.
there is only bliss.

But only in cold.
Heat will never bring comfort
(Except for hot tubs).

Who was it that quit?
I can only blame myself...
you can do the same.

We've led this thread ill!
I shall resurrect it now.
In three... two... one... Go!

Very well, good sir;
A resurrection it is.

We abandoned this place,
time to bring it back!

Time to write haiku.
After this introduction,
I'll write a good one.

Life is difficult.
And if death were a lady,
would she be charming?
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 11, 2011, 02:26:58 pm
if death was a lady,
she would be most beautiful.
The most beautiful.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 11, 2011, 06:53:53 pm
Would she be caring,
an anthropomorphic death?
Or would she be cold?
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Japaka on September 12, 2011, 12:35:48 am
She is always warm.
Waiting for our lives to end,
Patiently, she waits.

At our finish line,
She greets us with a wide smile.
To take us away.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 12, 2011, 05:02:56 am
Her touch would be cold,
but would also be warming.
"Snow's warm when freezing."
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 13, 2011, 03:17:30 am
Ambivalent, death.
As the sand falls and life runs out,
she waits with a smile.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 13, 2011, 03:48:12 pm
subtly she calls me
her voice, quiet as the snow
but stronger than fire.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 14, 2011, 12:55:17 am
Life and death compete,
opposites opposing self.
They are both equal.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 14, 2011, 01:46:36 pm
no... not equal... no.
All life dies. there's no balance.
all things go to death.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: L0g0s on September 14, 2011, 02:06:03 pm
Ah! A Haiku thread?
No one told me this was here.
Such Enlightenment.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Japaka on September 14, 2011, 02:18:30 pm
Let's change the subject.
Death is a gloomy theme, right?
Nature works just fine.

The air, the water,
Fire, earth, all these things, we are.
Such balance, we ain't.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 14, 2011, 04:15:41 pm
But life and death too,
are just as natural things.
And yes, they're equal.

All of life may die,
but life's the progenitor.
Life is its master.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 15, 2011, 08:56:14 am
I was quoting that.
Or paraphrasing rather.
There is a balance.

Just as all life dies,
all life just the same is born.
Perfect harmony.

I will cease this now.
Death is a despressing point.
let's change the subject.

Also, welcome L0g0s.
Yes, there is a haiku thread...
and that is awesome.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 15, 2011, 09:53:37 am
You made a mistake.
In "Also, welcome L0g0s"
there's six syllables.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Japaka on September 15, 2011, 11:25:36 am
Well, you are correct,
he made a grave mistake there.
Sush a shame on him.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Jety Lefr on September 15, 2011, 04:53:02 pm
uhhh... whoopsie daisy.
I meant for that to be "And."
My bad... I'm sorry.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 16, 2011, 07:57:09 am
But back to business.
Rather than point out errors,
let's write some haiku.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Japaka on September 16, 2011, 09:48:49 am
Agreed indeed, friend.
Now, any new ideas?
I'm all out i think.

It's my turn to find errors.
(You made on just now)
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 17, 2011, 04:26:24 am
It was a typo. Obviously. I'm not even going to bother writing a response in haiku, because now you're just wasting time by reverting back to corrective comments, and especially when I was trying to be serious. At least my comment on your mistake was relevant to the nature of haiku.
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: Japaka on September 17, 2011, 01:54:58 pm
Actually, i agree with sushi on this one. :P

Oh well, back again,
keep it cool, and organize.
No need to argue, ok?
Title: Re: Haiku Showdown
Post by: the1truesushiboy on September 17, 2011, 07:39:25 pm
And now we return.
Let's see if I can write now,
Something poetic.

...

Nope. Not in the mood.
Hopefully someone else is.
I'm taking a break.
