with Sonada Keibu...
Each day a crisis.

| Myself having been
lovesick before, fear Yuki
soon may hurt herself

| Yuki, my snow child,
how did Spring come so quickly?
What son melts your heart?

Gamera, friend to children,
comes to help Yuki.

Just finished rebuilding bay,
You silly turtle,
Bays are for boats you see,
Not for turticular ph34r.
Poor lovesick Yuki,

[!haiku]Additional apologies to Joel 'n' the 'bots. And, yes, why NOT turtle soup? If it's good enough for Ryori no Tetsujintatchi it's good enough for me![/!haiku]

It was my intention to use "turticular terror" originally, since as much as I like a good haiku, I really like alliterations. Alliterations are almost always awesome.

Thank you, I KNEW there was a giant turtle, just couldn't think of the name.

As giant turtles in the bay appear,
The half-express'ed fatherly concern,
A brother, as genetics would dictate,
And yet a mother seems to understand,
Their silence until times less fraught with doubt,
Our heroine, of course, may credit not
And so, while turtles, dad and brother, mum,
And as for us, dear readers, we must wait
Figured I may as well make my return with more than the usual three lines, since it's been a while, and I've always liked the iambic form despite being pretty lousy at it...
I have an urge to play around with some funkier rhyme patterns, but that'll do as a first attempt. I may return with some more IP verse at the weekend, depending upon the attendance of my muse, or lack thereof...
