    Default OT: Haiku room

    Haiku is a poetry style of writing that allows the person writing the freedom to creatively use wording without the need to rhyme. It has a distinct pattern in that the first line has 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables and third line 5 syllables. Technically, Haiku deals with some form of nature but here we can certainly waive that criteria. We have been playing around a bit with Haiku in Chit Chat and thought it warranted its own thread so we can all play and create together. So....read on and join in.

    Here are a couple of examples I have written. Please feel free to create your own.

    New day, second chance
    To ease mistakes that have past
    And make all things fresh.

    Whoa! rhyming Haiku
    For our members we do woo
    We just never knew!!!!!


    Heal as you will
    Write, medicate, meditate
    Health will come to you

    "Take Prozac", she says...
    Side effects of writing less
    I'll take my chances.

    Meds take time to work.
    Words on the page give relief
    Much more quickly here.

    No "Thanks" button here--
    It's gone, vanished, disappeared,
    Lost in Webby mists....

    Brain has turned to mush

    Can't think of a thing

    It is wet today
    Six inches of snow now rain
    I'm soaked to the bone.

    Clothing change for work
    Will clean off the car now
    And head to office.

    Cold brook is speaking
    frozen stream still keeps moving
    journey to the sea
    Evolution spans the Universe.

    Thanks button goes poof
    Again. Like Cheshire cat's smile--
    Now here and then gone.

    (My Thanks button has disappeared again. Thanks to everyone anyway!)
