    I Have Created // The Official Haiku Thread. // Please come and join me.

    I apologize
    for the wall of text I've made,
    but please bear with me.

    This will be a thread
    where people can share haiku.
    There is but one rule:

    Everything you say
    must be said as a haiku.
    No exceptions. None.


    Now I will teach you
    how to write your own haiku.
    It's really easy.

    Five syllables here,
    and seven syllables now.
    Bam! That's a haiku.

    What are they about?
    Anything and everything.
    Whatever you like.

    "But my poems are bad!"
    Nonsense! If it fits the form,
    then it's a haiku!

    If you think haiku
    are for geniuses, then you
    should look at this one:

    Haiku poems are strange,
    and most of them don't make sense.
    Refrigerator.



    See? You can do it!
    I bet you've already got
    some good ideas,

    so come and share them:
    I promise that I won't judge.
    Let's have fun with this!

    I can't write haiku
    How can I express my thoughts
    In such a small space?

    That's very easy
    You just select your words more
    carefully and then

    you split them up to
    make more than one stanza if
    you have to. See that?

    You can write a whole
    sentence in haiku format
    with a little work.

    I think brevity
    Is the soul of a haiku
    Have you missed the point?

    Brevity is good,
    but levity is better.
    Wouldn't you agree?
