Do you haiku?
In an effort to bring entertainment, because Gina said we needed some, I say we write some Haiku.

For those who don't know, haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. Each line consists of 17 syllables, divided into three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line.

For example, here's a sports-themed haiku.

Bold Bill Belichick
Went for it on fourth and two
Anyone else would punt.


Or one that's site-themed:

In the Locker Room
People are funny and cool
Glad Cubsgirl is back.


Can you write a haiku? A real challenge would be to take the last line of someone else's and use it as the first line in yours, but I'll be happy to see anything you can come up with. Maybe I'll do a daily feature.

FanIQ was too much fun
Ended Season One
Season Two, Nothing to do


We get ten respects a day
that don't go too far
So we have to make up games

The Locker Room Had to change
Gone is the old gang
Season Two, Not A Big Bang

We want back our accolades
The locker room too
They will come out of the zoo

WTF is a syllable?

Why don't remember syllables from school?

Fate rarely calls me
At a moment of my choice
But still I reply.

The thunder bellows
Lightning splits the storming sky
It is up to me
To finish what I started
Or all will perish this day.  (this is a tanka, a haiku with two extra lines of seven syllables each.)

I sit and stare down
At the river that keeps on
Flowing out to sea
Bearing countless memories
That my tears washed from my heart.

The poll is not lame....geezzz. I was just using the last line of Leslie's poem----following your rules.

I pronounce the words aloud (aloud to myself, anyway) and I say "any" without a breath or pause, which for me means it's monosyllabic. But good job everyone for dissecting my flaw. Now if I were to break down all the haikus in this poll that didn't follow the 5-7-5 format-- well, then I just wouldn't be fun anymore. ;P
