Will you write a Haiku about how you feel at this moment?

Asked by AshLeigh (14960 points ) September 3rd, 2011

I’ve recently gotten really into writing Haiku’s.
I’ve been writing four or five per days, since Tuesday morning.
So, I think it would be interesting to read some written by fellow Jellies.
My most recent one is:
If you had the choice,
would you open your eyes now?
It’s time to wake up…

For those of you who don’t know, a Haiku is a three line poem.
The first line has five syllables.
The second has seven.
The last has five.

I hope you’re alright.

I worry for you,
We’ll get through this together,
My dearest Ash-Leigh.

“Does finally have
Two syllables or one,” I
wonder as I count.

The same question goes
for hours, as I inhale and
exhale and still count.

Repeat after me, please.
LIne one, five, line two, seven
And finally five.

That will depend on
Whether you say, “fine-lee,”
Or else “fine uh lee.”

I just descovered
Tanka. Just like a Haiku,
But add two more lines,
both with seven syllables.
Didn’t I know this before?

@ddude1116:

Repeat after me, please.

And finally five.

ddude1116's avatar

In the initial Japanese, yes, they consisted of five-seven-five on, which are not syllables. When translated to English they can consist of up to six syllables. Besides, contemporary haiku shouldn’t be restricted by the constraints of precision. They should be freed from constraints and instead paint a portrait of a thought, of a dream.

Faidle's avatar

I will still worry,
nonetheless. It’s what I do.
I heart you @AshLeigh.

I want winter now
Missing all the snow flakes
And wearing my boots

I don’t want winter.
I miss all the sunny days.
And not wearing boots. ;)

I hate the summer
you can wear warmer clothes
cant be more than nude

Spring and fall are good
summer and winter both suck
warm days, cool nights. Yes.

It’s been one month now,
Since you went to see Jesus.
Rest in peace, Asher.

Cups of black coffee.

And now I can never die
What is the movie?

@Symbeline could
that film be ‘Death Becomes Her’
Starring Meryl Streep?

Symbeline's avatar

Aye indeed it be,
Such a weird but fun movie
Meryl Streep be hawt.

Tanka:
The end of the game…
and that was it; you realized..
Everything had changed.
You didn’t want to give up,
But spring had already left.

Today was crazy
Two rail crashes, both Volvo’s
Fall’s first cold drizzle

My patience wears thin.
Your ignorance brings my rage.
Things don’t work that way.

I now breath fluther
Soon, I’ll be somewhere other
But I will be back

Faidle's avatar

Today is boring.
I don’t want to go to school.
Maybe I’ll play sick. ;)

Two sparing fluthers
Trapped in a frenzy social
It’s this story or that

Haiku rules apply.
It’s not just grammar. Last line
needs five syllables

A gale virus
Follows and tries to corrupt
My wryter in vain

Cold rain upon glass
Is it autumn or winter
This night in Scotland.

@flutherother – Very, very nice! You’ll get a ‘Great Answer!’ from me every time with haiku’s such as this one. Thanks!

Is a surreal sight, indeed
A cold October

The snow doesn’t wait,

Bring it on, Jack Frost.

augustlan's avatar

We should write a book
One Haiku, then another
All on one topic

AshLeigh's avatar

@augustlan, we’ll get right on that. :D

AshLeigh's avatar

I hate you Haiku.
You are very hard to do.
Go back to Japan.

Mantralantis's avatar

I no go back now
Haiku is like tree branching
It grow with no hate

Mantralantis's avatar

@Mantralantis – Hey, you idiot, you forgot to put “She’s” in front of “still beautiful” in that last line of your ‘40 candles’ haiku. Remember to be patient and focused next time okay?

Mantralantis's avatar

@Mantralantis – Oh. . .ok. (Crap almighty! Darn it!)

AshLeigh's avatar

Life’s a Catalyst.
Psychological Warfare.
I’m a Chameleon…

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – That was really very good. See, Ash, its not too hard for anyone to remember now is it? Basically you just play off the last interesting thing that comes your way, if you must. Even if its something that’s not pleasant really. And then you give someone else fodder for their expression as well. Haiku’s are simply the best kind of poems I believe now.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mantralantis, I know this. This is my question. It was just a joking Haiku. :P

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – Yes…I know you knew. That’s why I played it that way. So you could make a haiku expressing how you feel about how you thought I would comment in such a way. Instead you didn’t make a haiku. You simply made a comment on something we both know but was redundant. Anyway, I tried.

Try to haiku all.of that. I will understand and not judge you one bit. Go ahead. Try it.

AshLeigh's avatar

@Mantralantis, seriously I know what I’m doing. Haha.

Today feels like hell.
Gage, I don’t know what I did…
I just miss you now…

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh

Once again, I know…
What you already in fact know
Haiku was the thing

AshLeigh's avatar

I am aware what
your goal was. However, I
play by my own rules. ;)

Mantralantis's avatar

inside with headaches
outside, i long for this day
to not be on here

flutherother's avatar

Counting syllables
With my fingers, like a child
Five, seven and five.

@flutheother:

Congratulations.

Some people (here) seem to have eight

Fingers on each hand

Two things are wrong with
this haiku thread: a wind call
and a Dark priss tongue

Yep.

@gailcalled, And some apparently only have four. ;)

Back again, jellies…
I was getting bored with things
I got nostalgic

My voise is venom.
Hard times never go away.
My heart is afflict.

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – I really like your ‘voise’. It’s. . .different.

AshLeigh's avatar

Ahhh, crap. Did I really say voise? XD Voice*******

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – Ah…but I really like this new voise. And you’re actually a cool person.

Voice + noise, I mean, of course. Clever accident then. Yep.

AshLeigh's avatar

Me? A cool person? I like to think so. :)

Mantralantis's avatar

@AshLeigh – Yeps. Now, I’m sure your sweet too, somewhere there. Am I right? I mean, I’m not exactly saying Cool Whip sweet. But I hope you get what. . .hey, that could possibly work:

cool WHIP. (I mean that in a nice way, of course;)

Mantralantis's avatar

Nevermind the man behind that black curtain. He’s not always cool. Be good as you are, Ms. Haiku.

Back again, within
This realm I once was before
With a vigil hope

AshLeigh's avatar

Your eyes are crystal.
We made regrets together.
I am not sorry.

Purple clouds far off,
Suddenly the air is full
Of tiny snowflakes.

Mantralantis's avatar

Lost on an island
With some plane crash survivors
And hostile Others

gailcalled's avatar

What does this dream mean?
Does he really like me? Am
I really pregnant?

Luckily, my age
And concomitant slowness
makes these queries moot.

I am therefore free
to step into the garden…
greet the borer bees.

AshLeigh's avatar

It’s eighty degrees.
We are not prepared for this.
This is Alaska.

Thunder, lightning, rain
Last night: tornado sped by
And power stayed on.

Spring was late this year
No matter, she is here now
Lovely as ever.

I’ve got to bet back.
The garden is waiting now.
Out to the garden.
