Her innocent words
have filthy implications.
Or so Junpei thinks. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Garran Mar 12 2004, 03:10 AM
Can it be, though wise,
The l33t master lives in vice?
Junpei raise eyebrows.

what you don't know matters not,
it's what you know that ain't so!

[irish_haiku]
Junpei see truant from school.
Junpei know that against rule.
This girl say she late,
She l33t master roommate,
And Junpei not think this is cool.

His blocky grammer
And questions makes Ping nervous.
Scandal starts right here.

["Attempt at a smurdian rhyming tanka" tanka:]

Where's my friend today?
Do you think she's forgotten?
Ninja in the way!
Vile rumours are begotten,
But anxious Ping don't spot them.

[irish haiku]
After helping avert a distaster,
Ping's trying to get to school faster,
En route she fakes
Out a ninja and makes
Him bewildered about his l33t-m4st3r.

From times before the present
Returns to haiku.
But this tanka points out that
He was here before this thread.

Large mob before store
And dirty connotations
Junpei have long day.

To take off and head for school

Whoah! Big ninja dude! Junpei!
Robot girl is late..

[ haiku? ]

Ping going to school;
Junpei has an odd meeting.
Rocks in the water

Innocent or lewd?
Context makes all the difference.
Don't rock the boat yet.

[ irish haiku? ]

First Ping answers the door on the sly,
then Junpei thinks l337 master's awry.
For a game 'cessory,
she is cute as can be,
but as a whole the poor girl makes me cry!

Ping always makes me say "Oi!
A misunderstanding via toy!?
With this frequent scene,
I must intervene,
and equate this to Marmalade Boy!" ;-) (lots of misunderstandings there)

--Xky *waving Mami flag happily*

And reflections can
Display unwitting deceptions
Water distorts sight.

What I enjoy here,
Is that Junpei doesn't seem
To judge Largo yet.

He only seems to
Be wondering what the hell
Could be going on.

Will the ripples become waves

It is truly wrong
how many fanboys in here
have such hentai minds.

It must be said though,
the dirtiest mind of all
is that of Piro.

Posted by: NovaDude Mar 12 2004, 04:36 PM
Such cute face,
as such wrong place,

Does junpei not notice,
the calm before storm?

I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, I never tried such Haiku, I actually don't even know what it means, I'm just following the flow, forgive me if this is wrong!
Thanks!

Haiku normally
5-7-5 but many
patterns abound here

As Shoka stated
(Although in another thread)
See the quote below:

It seems that after a long drought in SD forum creative writing, things are picking up again. Haiku threads are getting more than a relative handful of posts. Old talent has returned, and the new talent is exceptional. Don't know why this happens from time to time, but I like it.

Nothing to forgive.
All participants welcome!
Come and write haiku!

[/!haiku]
Haiku is a Japanese verse form comprised of 17 onji arranged in three lines of 5-7-5. As practiced in SD and the Creative Writing forums, this becomes three lines of 5-7-5 totalling seventeen syllables.

Eleven syllables arranged 3-5-3 is also used occasionally, the argument being that since English carries a higher information content than Japanese, using fewer syllables is necessary to bring English haiku closer in spirit to the orignal Japanese form.

Other Japanese verse forms used here are:

1. tanka, thirty-one syllables arranged in 5-7-5-7-7, with the central line being a "pivot" around which the poem revolves. http://www.ahapoetry.com/tanka.htm

2. renga, thirty-one syllables also arranged in 5-7-5-7-7. As practiced here, the first person writes 5-7-5, and the respondent uses 7-7, taking the imagery of the first "verse" and either developing it further or twisting it slightly to bring something new to the poem. The next respondent then writes 5-7-5 and so on. For an example, look at previous posts in this very thread, begining with Shoka's response to my first haiku.

And to continue the current renga...

Beyond the rim of thinking
The ninja miss point

Erika within
Junpei outside, meeting Ping
turmoil on both fronts
Erika must face her past
Will Largo lose Junpei's faith?
</tanka>

Ping cause suspicion
Many things Junpei not know
Trouble for Largo?
