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.
When life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then sit back and let the world wonder how the f**k you did it.

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.

The sun shines above,
in the shadows it creates,
is a place we stay.

When life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then sit back and let the world wonder how the f**k you did it.

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

Flourishing cascade,
perpetually renewed,
Unchanging downfall.

want not wanton stress,
do not feed fires of turmoil,
feel simplicity.

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

With the raging wind,
comes slowly a softer breeze.
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.

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

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!

What happened to us?
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?

Would she be caring,
an anthropomorphic death?
Or would she be cold?

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.

Her touch would be cold,
but would also be warming.

Ambivalent, death.
As the sand falls and life runs out,
she waits with a smile.

subtly she calls me
her voice, quiet as the snow
but stronger than fire.

Life and death compete,
opposites opposing self.
They are both equal.

no... not equal... no.
All life dies. there's no balance.
all things go to death.

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.
When life gives you lemons, make grape juice. Then sit back and let the world wonder how the f**k you did it.
