The rain has withdrawn
leaving only the ruin
a whisper of snow

largo knows it all
piro-san knows none at all
erika is scared

Through the autumn eve
A sketchpad close to her heart
As a plate of steel

a whisper of snow

[5-5]
Armor of Ice melts
cold devastation

[3-5-3]
Unfaced fears
magnified by time
Overwhelmed

Make one lucky guess
Forget all the other ones
and be named hero

Winter winds cannot
chill my soul, for the snow has come.
My heart melts anew.

Not so strange, her shock,
despite his cyber-shield, she's
an analog girl.

The storm has now passed,
but wiser weather eyes see
another front approaching.

hm... unless i'm wrong usually when someone posts, they want a responce then other people also doing the same thing.

Well Rowan Bristol i find your haiku good for the effect of the strip, has a lot of symbolism, the rain withdrawn would be the guy who was kicked out of megagamers, while the 'whisper of snow' can be the oncoming storm of what has become apparent as 'yuki' wink.gif

I'm not saying that you're wrong, because people really do like to get responses to their posts (who doesn't?), but there's no insult intended by not responding to the haiku that comes before ones own. It's a haiku thread after all, and traditionally discussion outside of haiku format has been curtailed in those threads.

But by all means, compliment someone if you enjoy what they've written. I agree with you, Rowan's haiku was very well done.

[!haiku] In haiku threads, the tradition is not to respond with a response, but to respond with another haiku. Generally, though, one does respond with a response. [/!haiku]

Well, Mr. Piro
Seems you were wrong once again
Regarding Largo

Unverified life
The mission was a failure
Was she in the store?

[3-5-3]
He walks past
Saying to her, "I
did warn you."

Yuki walks
Angstily pond'ring
His love life

The world is falling
Beautiful white walls crumble
Diamond dust or snow?

Different mixes
Ingredients make the soup
Sweet, sour and bitter
