sometimes tone is felt
upon deeper reflection
not on the surface

...

I cannot believe
two years have frittered away
haiku thread lied dormant

Rise, haiku thread, rise!
this is the hour of your
next resurrection!

We are all alone
Even in togetherness
We stand as but one

'Lonely is the world
It's a long way to nowhere
Only road I know'

(Those preceding words
The legendary Dio
Of Black Sabbath fame)


Look into the eyes
Reflections from far away
Join me -- go away!

Stand with no one else
Be like the lone desert shrub
Not the stalk of grass

Haiku: a poem
Syllables: five, seven, five
In order, three lines

A Japanese art;
To ponder sacred wonder;
Reflect on the world

Evoke thoughtfulness:
Use the haiku to speak here
Find your inner peace

Sci-Fi author John Scalzi (Old Man's War) is hosting a contest on his blog to be a redshirt in the novel he's writing. Entries must be haiku. Details here:

http://whatever.scalzi.com/2011/01/12/b ... a-contest/

Here's mine (only relevant if you read his rules):

Coherent light stabs
winter is briefly summer
I slump to the floor
What we have today is way too much pluribus and not enough unum.

Haikus are easy
But sometimes they don't make sense

Which also is INVALID since the first sentence only contains 4 syllables. A valid first sentence in a haiku, requires by law, 5 syllables, no exceptions! (5-7-5)

The word "Haiku" has 2 syllables, pronounced like HI - KU ... go to this site to hear it for yourself: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/haiku

Now. Back to the legit haiku's.

drinking beer is fun
judging beer is tons of work

Cold and wet, i shiver now
Alone in the night.
