post your haikus, or make them up on the spot =P

the busy black bee
gathers for its namesake, dust
of dying flower

pond is shallow, yet
a stone reflecting in it
is a deep ocean

I am golden brown
a white treasure, sticky, moist
within in me holds "yum!"

The passage of time
Can take away memories
But never actions

Desert oceans one
People defy that which is
Desert oceans won

Looking up is a must
But should you forget to trust
Your face will meet dust

A drop of water
A solitary tear
A leaf is weeping.

"We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far"
H.P. Lovecraft

Soft and white cold,
Shivers up and down my spine,
Silver spoon in cream.

Stagnant gray and damp,
Unpleasant to smell and touch,
Bleak and desolate.

Frightened deep blue eyes,
Quivering lips like a child,
The face of my love.

((three I whipped up happy.gif. Wee, I haven't written haiku in a long time. I forgot how fun it was.))

Smiles that deny truth
A face of conspiracy
The eyes do not lie

Dark and crimson red
The ever ready knife paints
On clear, white canvas.

Argh! Story...merging...with...reality...

Get out of my mind, curse you!

oh bringers of faith
do you not place humble trust
in the receivers?

a small wet napkin
ally of progress and yet
enemy of past

a cursed body feels
grapes of wrath upon it, and
withers in noon sun

i cant seem to fin-
-ish any sort of long state-
-ments in my haikus!

Wheeee goes the squirrel
gonads and strife in the rain
without drugs of course

words getting kinda
euphoric and disjointed
mmm, turkey sammich...

Bweh heh eh... I just finished a second reading of your story, BoD, and now this haiku. Too funny. ^.^ Eek, now what was I going to write...

Stifling sweet sugar,
Bitter recoil in the mouth,
Arsenic goes down.

The pretty puppy,
Sweet dark brown eyes look at you,
From behind the bars.

Untouched white canvas,
No footprints to disturb it,
Crystalline snow hills.

Laughing lips and eyes,
When I see you so happy,
I've warmth in my chest.

Pen and ink fatigue,
Weary arm and spastic mind,
Words won't stop flowing.

Caffeine high at night,
Jittery, shaking, no sleep,
Computer screen glows.

I wrote this haiku in World Lit, where we were creating illustrations for our haiku. I got lazy, thus:

I look east and west
Two rabbits in a snowstorm
that is all I see

I had a blank sheet of paper.....

My small rose of red
Continuing to lie on
It loses color

Time flies slowly by
Siting behind bars of steel
My heart wants to fly

Tears that like to hide
Grinding pain sets into me
Where can they go now?

whee haiku! my turn!

~~~~~~~~~~
warm cup of tea
paper pens and thoughts awhirl
inspiration hits!

words on a white page
poetry flows like a river
trick'ling from the pen

ideas halted
pen put down on the table
it is dinner time

what are dreams to me
lifes hopes and aspirations
drifting on a thought

Posted by: Nova Dec 20 2002, 06:48 PM

alone and fearful again

Posted by: blitz-sama Dec 23 2002, 09:04 PM
its because haiku's are classically about the depth and beauty of nature, and thats what i wrote about in that haiku XD

across the opus
a newborn moonwell shall bring
eternal wreckage

inside the flower
lies the unfruitful being
death mocks the living

prelude: newborn spring
conclusion: aging autumn
stories await me

i cast the young fern
to the will of the calm stream
forsight of nature

a place of hallow
of cold sounds and chills
is where I sleep safe

a man's life is will
wisdom he gains in its wake
the tree is wiser

a babbling brook
crashes on the jagged banks
like the angry son

at one point in life
everything starts to go wrong
that's when your alive

call upon jokers
and the drinkers and searches
for life is wonderous!

on a barren street
cracked from a raging battle
lies a fallen dove

the sharp, rampant ears
of hot-blown crystal and glass
drop many an eave...

Forthwith from old grudge
breaks out black gold in geyser,
where civil picks delve.

Unclean hands pan through
supple streams and frothing flows,
in the sand, gold glows

Veins that won't run dry
but, rejuvenated, spring
brightly as blitz-krieg.

Shining star in sky
cross at a peddling lover
unites themes to end.

New to the forum, not to Megatokyo. But I thought I'd try my hand at some of this.

Leaves crackle under
Snow encrusted winter boots
The silence broken

Crying in darkness
Tears staining your pale white cheeks
Crystalline frailty

The teddy bear sits
Battered, torn, stitches popping
Casualty of love

w00+! An idea of mine caught on! At least, I think it was my idea. This blew up fast, though...

Too far away, dear
Distance is a barrier
As I reach through miles

Of nothing, no one
Which try their very hardest
To keep me from you

Why must life torture?
The only one I really love
Lives so far away!

This is usual.
Life, fate, and God have no mercy
When it comes to me.

I lie in the field
Tall grass entombs my body
I could just die here

Nothing in the fridge
Not even the bologna
My tummy rumbles

Without gravity
Cookie jar on the ceiling
I am quite confused

Fires of heaven
smolder fitfully only
when eyes have seen them.

The darkest hours
always come before daylight
that greatly pleases.

Casting thoughts in stone
can hone their imperfections
or leave a mass of dust.

The hand that holds on
through the dusk and the twilight
is all the more loved.

Haiku cycle: The Five Seasons I*

Young leaf unfurling
Baby in her womb stirring
Miracle of life

Her laughter singing
Cherry petals in the breeze
Moments of beauty

Bursting light flowers
Valley echoing thunder
Birth of a nation

Geese flying southwards
Dead leaves dancing in the wind
Sense of abandonment

Skeletal trees
Black against cold white softness
Year's end desolation

*[For haiku purposes, I took the liberty of making the time period when the cherry trees blossom a separate season.]

/february 2003/

in the courtyard, birch
oak and elm, three friends budding
like three young girls

but beyond these walls,
all is not well. husbands march
to far-flung conflict;

an angry spring wind
shakes thunder from the banners
of prideful nations.

Maekuzuke Anyone?*

Okay, it's not a proper maekuzuke contest, but rather an exercise in linked poetry. The part of maekuzuke we'll use for this game is the 5-7-5 of haiku, and the 7-7 of the connecting links. The first respondent will write a 7-7, the person responding to that will write a verse of 5-7-5 and so on in alternation.

If we have multiple writers responding to the same verse, subsequent writers should quote the verse to which they are responding to avoid confusion.

The final requirement is that the follow up verse be at least loosely associated with the previous verse in some fashion, be it elaborating on the same theme, disagreeing with it, or depicting it from a different perspective, for example.

It should be interesting to see how a jointly written poem will evolve. And now, the first verse ...

Cherry blossoms brush
my face softly as they fall.
Ah! How like her kiss!

You see me falling down, yet
I never had life.

Darkness envelops
The world forever, now I
Die sealed in darkness.

Figure out what he had done
And so was he found.

The street and then I died. I
Remember you all.

Way too much. Maybe I could
Use a word like "them".

A bird taking flight.
So too my fond thoughts of you.
Can you hear my call?

the morning sun melts the snow

Fragrant memories linger,
remembered warmth, or the sun?

Hiking to Verdugo Peak: Impressions

Scent of pine resin
Green boughs reaching for blue light
Sound of gentle breeze

From dead trunks charred black
Pines put forth new green needles
From death comes new life

Velvet moss forest
Clinging to jagged cliff face
A miniature world

Lonely crow calling
only the echoes answer
fire-scarred valley

Naked hills melting
rain torn, lonely for trees
Sterile desolation

Solitary traveller
Above sprawling urban blight
Solace of nature

Verdugo Peak reached.
Why do I feel so empty?
Need a new challenge.

Above two valleys
A summit wreathed in brown smog
Humans blight the sky

And I awaken
colors in syncopation
with regret's music

The real world's echo
Fades behind a dreamworld that
Beckons me to stay

All based on nothing
Yet if I left this false place
I know I would die

Nature changes without us

we sacrifice to our hopes.

Equinox dawning.
Earth clothed in new foliage.
Renewal of hope.

I am thankful for nature
For with it I am reborn.

But a trick of fate
causes ev'rything to fail.
This wasn't my plan.

One's rebirth comes with a death;
Whose death comes with this cycle?

Is this warmth now genuine?

I toss an oak leaf
the winds letting it spiral
awake, I follow.

Wind scatters the leaves.
Wandering, I chase the wind.
Like the leaves, my thoughts.

Hiking Impressions II

In mountains' shadow
the chill of night still lingers.
Bite of loneliness.

Island in the sky.
The mountain hangs suspended.
Sea of clouds beneath.

Tiny chipmunk flees
heavy-footed traveller.
Fear of the unknown.

Noontime coyote
seeking shelter of its lair
surprised by human.

First Haiku Ever:

So I think, why not?
Haiku sounds like fun, don't it?
Man, haiku is fun...


Posted by: Slyninja Mar 24 2003, 07:14 AM
I need two more posts
To get one hundred thread posts
One hundred gives what?

Does my haiku suck?
It is hard to write good ones...
Don't you think so too?
