Ruby eyes glaring
The sound of wings dissipate
Extinction thrives here

The lone walk with more
Seeking the non-existant
Is there no true spoon?

It just hit me that not everyone may be familiar with the haiku form. To make the lives of those folks who still want to join in the contest a bit easier:

1. A single poem of three lines, complete in itself; no series (in spite of the meaning of the word haiku!).

2. 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, 5 in the third.

3. No rhyme structure.

4. No titles, explanatory lines or dedications.

5. Includes some apsect of nature compared or contrasted with an aspect of human nature to make a point.

1 and 2 have to be true for the poem to be a haiku; without those two things going on, it isn't haiku. Even in modern haiku (which is still written as a serious art form in many languages), 3 and 4 generally aren't broken. 5 is traditional to haiku but is broken often in modern ones; for this contest, it's probably right out the window considering the subject matter.

There you go, have fun!

Heh. Thanks. I had my suspicions, but now I KNOW my haikus are crap. Now I'll do a better one.


Do not rock the boat

I went up and had a peek at the ones a couple posts back - they only need minor tweaking to fit into the form, so you didn't do so badly Smile

Do you like the ones I just did? The other ones are crap.

*EDIT* I fixed the top two. The other two are beyond repair.

Looks like you even stuck the nature rule pretty well with those - nice job Smile I like the second better because it does less telling what it's about - a feature of Japanese haiku that can only be imperfectly done in English because English is a far more direct language.

Uh oh, you got the poetry major going again Laughing Pass the valium and step away quietly and no one will get hurt.

A cat, head on feet
Ticking of an old gold clock
The senses decieve



Okay, that's enough for now. I'm going to roleplay on starcraft.

Burst into the locker room,

Aah, what the hell, one more.

Deep is my mourning,
In the freezing snow that falls,
I am out of coke.

Well if you are going to get technical I'll post my friend Heath's haiku:

I need a doctor.
They're both obscenely swollen.
Elephantitis.

We normally just go for the 5-7-5 rule and the rest is whatever.

I knew someone would jump on me for just sharing some information.

My gratitude for not making me wait too long.

More Haiku's off the top of my head. This time, non-ALP related.

Worker bees can leave
Even drones can fly away
The queen is their slave.

Without just one nest
A bird can call the world home
Life is your career.

Flowers bloom and die
Wind brings butterflies or snow
A stone won't notice.

A tiger can smile
A snake will say it loves you
Lies make us evil.

Okay, more ALP Haiku's:

His sight is fading
Christ could work a miracle
To save Preston's eyes.

...

Damn, that's all I can think of for now. Oh well. More will arrive soon.

Slitted eyes and teeth
Feathers, scales, tough membrane
Spread throughout the tree.

I don't think Alien King listened to urbanshawoman... Or those were separate

I kinda liked my

The light starts to fade
Reptilian hearts beat still
Avert your gaze, eye

So I put it in the profile of my CuteBabyDragon account on SC.

Addictive to create, aren't they? Laughing

AK's scan out fine on a quick check; as I said, the really formal rules aren't likely to apply here, considering the subject matter we're dealing with. Though you could very easily argue that Bernie's saying a lot about human nature through non-human creatures, so why not?
