Every board needs a haiku thread! [Prompt]

Recommended Posts

[align=center]It is proven true

There should always be haiku

This even rhymes. ...shit.[/align]


Haiku! Short, easy and fun and a staple of every board that's any board, at least in my time on the internet. Don't worry about anything true-to-form; The beauty of nature is great and all, but I'm only asking for people to do some short and sweet 5-7-5 lines of poetic creativity.


For anyone who's unaware of what I mean, haiku are short poems composed of three lines. The first is five syllables long, the second is seven, and the last is five again. Read more about haiku here.


This is meant to be light-hearted fun. Tell a story. Frame a character. Inspire! Make us laugh! Write haiku!

He remembers why he fights.

Blistering metal--

As hot as the glaring sun,

plummets down to us.


Kweh, kweh, little bird.

Haul us all around the land.

You deserve a treat.


I have no idea what I'm doing.

Mantis, green and strong. 

Deadly pincers, razor sharp. 

Waiting for his chance.
