PostSubject: Haikus   Sun Feb 23, 2014 7:01 pm

I have been asked to add a Haikus section.  Map admits this this is not an area with which she is familiar but was given the following as an example: syllables 5, 7, 5; 3 lines long: loquacious, he spoke/his words flowed over my head/overwhelming me


I'm sure the Haiku experts on the board will give us examples but the following link gives us a good guide and has examples.  I'll have to try the Haiku thing myself!  It looks fun.

Haiku (俳句 high-koo) are short poems that use sensory language to capture a feeling or image. They are often inspired by an element of nature, a moment of beauty or a poignant experience. Haiku poetry was originally developed by Japanese poets, and the form was adapted to English and other languages by poets in other countries.

I have no experience with Haiku either, dear MAP. But here goes:

The coin flips once more
No doubt it’s an honest toss
Brown eyes smile at blu

Cards dealt, the dark-eyed
Man peeked slowly.  Poker-faced,
He tossed them.  "I fold."

Pine shadows on still
Surface, shattered into sharp
Glistening fragments.

Summer soft whispers;
Aspen shivering baseless
Rumours of the wind.

Acrid powder scent.
Fire fractured ores washed out from
Heaving, riven earth.

Warm sandbanks threaten
Summer; swift shadow flit, still
The single martin.

And what's to stop us creating haiku cycles?

Garden (Lauds to Prime)

Collared mother priest
Ensconced in cherry pulpit;
Plainsong for the dawn.

Evergreen chorale
Response, holly chancel arch
Endlessly redrawn.

Wind moved rafters flick
Across the nave, paint sun tile
Patterns on the lawn.






Absolutely nothing to do with Alias Smith & Jones of course...

Never mind, Apothecary, as long as they paint such beautiful, vivid pictures of nature.
How do you do it? Consider me amazed.

Wow, what else can I say?!?

S3 nailed it in her applause!

... and I think I am clever if I manage to pay the milkman on time.

Well done, very evocative!

This is not ASJ, but about my avatar. And horses have some connection to ASJ...

Sam Jo

Proudly arched dark neck
Sunlight dancing sparks on mane
Horse prince's eyes shine


He loved his outings in Windsor Great Park. When it was his turn to be unloaded from the horse box, he would always first stop at the top of the ramp and take a look around. He looked like a king on his throne, surveying his kingdom.
He enjoyed to move and loved a gallop. It was like a dream, flying along on him. I miss him very much. For me he'll always be this proud prince of a horse who loved to run.
