Posted:try here if you need help with hiaku's

I'll start you off with:

Looking at the clouds
blue in the ice-wind
space flows


An innocent child will usually have the most evil intentions

Posted:I thought the syllable structure was 5,7,5?

rain dashed hopes of joy
inside slow-witted persons,
dullness not relieved.

golden light through clouds
an awakening of worlds -
the dreamers dear hope.


It was a day for screaming at inanimate objects.

What this calls for is a special mix of psychology and extreme violence...

Posted:I found this on HDC about a year ago. I thought it was funny:

Zen and the Art of Microsoft Maintenance

In Japan, they have replaced the impersonal and unhelpful Microsoft Error messages with Haiku poetry messages. Haiku poetry has strict construction rules. Each poem has only three lines, 17 syllables: five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, five in the last. Haikus are used to communicate a timeless message, often achieving a wistful, yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity. This is the essence of Zen:

Your file was so big.
It might be very useful.
But now it is gone.

The Web site you seek
Cannot be located, but
Countless more exist.

Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Program aborting:
Close all that you have worked on.
You ask far too much.

Windows NT crashed.
I am the Blue Screen of Death.
No one hears your screams.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

First snow, then silence.
This thousand-dollar screen dies
So beautifully.

With searching comes loss
And the presence of absence:
"My Novel" not found.

Stay the patient course.
Of little worth is your ire.
The network is down.

A crash reduces
Your expensive computer
To a simple stone.

Three things are certain:
Death, taxes, and lost data.
Guess which has occurred.

You step in the stream,
But the water has moved on.
This page is not here.

Having been erased,
The document you're seeking
Must now be retyped.

Serious error.
All shortcuts have disappeared.
Screen. Mind. Both are blank.


In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.

Posted:implore not this screen
your words bring more loneliness
program responds not

your once friendly mouse
talks less with your computer
for it shuns commands

abrupt is the end
and unforeseen the closing
lost words bring grieving

Posted:Captain Hazzard you live really near to me, who are you? And what are you doing, doing Poi in a place like this.

Sorry to interupt the thread, so Haiku's - there not mine but,

After she is gone
slowly unwinding a long
hair from my sweater.

The men kill the whale,
they do not waste the great whale,
except it's beauty.

They're my favourites...not that I know that many yet.


...never just an ordinary girl.

Harsh, the winter wind
blows the red scarf to freedom
stealing hard won warmth


Currently on the right side up of the world.
