    Haiku is for you

    But haiku is not for me

    So let’s not haiku

    That’s probably not going to keep them from being bored!

    Acute haikuism

    Forces counting not thinking

    Bad bad bad, haiku!

    I really like Nancy Ritz’s s’mores haiku from last Thursday, November 19.

    The appeal of a haiku

    I never grasped

    it is a mystery to me

    There once was an artist named Darrin Bell

    whose characters spoke Haiku – not very well.

    Do you think they will find

    some form not of that kind

    but funny? Who knows. Only time will tell.

    I do like haiku

    But sometimes I want to slum

    It with the low-ku.

    Satchel, the sweet if a bit dense pooch of “Get Fuzzy” fame, wrote a haiku in an old strip, almost exactly (IIRC) like the one Rosenkranz makes up here.

    I suppose that composition has occurred to others, too… the number words just happen to have the requisite number of syllables to make it low-hanging fruit.


    The attribute of true haiku that everyone seems to ignore is that they’re supposed to have a seasonal theme…

    no, not about the Thanksgiving turkey, or Santa Claus…

    but describing the moment when, for instance, an apple, or a falling leaf, encapsulates the feeling of autumn.

    A not-so-young guy on GoComics

    Attempted to write a haiku.

    But ’twas to no avail;

    Each attempt seemed to fail.

    So he decided a Limerick would do.

    or else just more nonsense lines

    Why not 4,6,4 or 8. 12. 8 or whatever. I know it wouldn’t be Haiku but it could have another name set in the depths of history. Maybe a history of another culture. African perhaps.
