  • The "Things That Have Been Over Done" Haiku Thread

    Dear posters:
    5-7-5
    No lectures about the acutal form, if you please. Just read and/or post. Also, try not to point out that a post hasn't hit the 5-7-5 format. Such nitpicking is very boring.

    The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

    And also no diatribes recounting conflicting opinions on whether 5-7-5 is the 'proper' English-language haiku structure. The structure of 5-7-5 has been set.

      Television sucks
      Away the last iota
      Of intelligence.

      Artists and writers
      Prostitute all their talents
      To create that suck.

          _"For an eternity Allard was alone in an icy limbo where all the colours were bright and sharp and comfortless.
          _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
          _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
          _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                  I suck at haiku
                  They are not my cup of tea.

                  I'm far too verbose.
