6-8-6 doesn't get it done.

Left_Shifted beware
Haiku rule mandatory
Do better next time.

Obey the meter!
Ignoring proper rhythm
Renders haiku void.

These are not haikus
Real Haikus speak to nature
Not simply meter.

First hints of summer
Bring balmy April weather!
Yet we write Haikus...

Better luck next year

Inspired by contest
Learn Haiku, taking interest
TR thread... genius

Rhyme? No need, I know
But syllable rule not strict
Some just one line thick

Something about pace
Cutting the poem in half
(I'm no good at that)

Without further 'do
Spats my name, no... Spats the Bard
Pleased to join TR!

About me, a gamer
and OC'er, but leaner
my rigs, all "steamers"

Low-buck equipment
Used chips, bargain bin systems
Value- my mission.
The B130 Bomber - budget dell laptop from 2005
Pentium M 1.7Ghz pin modded to 2.26
2x1GB DDR2 800Mhz CL6

The bus bucks and heaves
. . . Dark puddles part beneath it
. . . . . . Wet doors squeak open


The car's engine . . . shouts
One front wheel . . . lifts . . . in the curve
We become . . . a bird

Vitality lost
Desk life causes health issues
Need new body parts
Build a man a fire and he's warm for the night. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.

Three in the morning
Awake with wheels still spinning
Something's gotta give
Do not meddle in the affairs of archers, for they are subtle and you won't hear them coming.

Haikus are so lame.
Let's not write them anymore.

A gentle breeze blows
The haiku flows in sunshine
A wild ronch appears.
