just a bit of arm twisting.
Gan batte, Yuki!

| blarg.. ganbatte is either 6 or 7 syllables..
I wrote the following several weeks ago.. it has nothing to do with the topic:
It's windy outside
A lonely tree is dancing;
I hear no music.

In reply to:Three English syllables (gan-ba-te), four Japanese mora (ga-n-ba-tte). Maybe five, but I'm pretty sure small kana (like the small 'tsu' in the 'tte' part) don't get counted.
But this is a haiku thread, not haiku discussion, so:
I didn't love him,
I'll never see him again
...until after school.

This gaijin's ears,
two strangers in a strange land,
grok but three beats there.
In truth, I am but an egg;
teach my ears to hear these sounds?

| innocent faces
explain their motivations
as bait for the trap

| (Warning: Shift-JIS encoded kana ahead)
ganbatte: work hard!
(Seraphim shows English beats)
kana written thus:
I don't count small-tsu:
alone, it has no meaning.
Not sound, but lack of.

| Unwilling Yuki,
Led by her friends, approaches.
A storm is coming.

| Piro faces doom
set upon by two fangirls
Yuki dragged along.
Seraphim's leg brace
formerly in the closet
could be out again?

| Young love is a game
Yuki's friends join in the fun
Better than shopping
for the challenge he will meet--
beseiged by cute girls
