A Haiku a Day 2014-06-09 13:08:13


The idea is as simple as the title -- I plan to write a haiku a day here. Feel free to join in.

There's only one rule for those who wish to take part, and that is that you must take long, soul-cleansing sips of herbal tea for each haiku you post to this thread. Don't think that there will be no consequences for breaking this rule. And don't think that I won't know, because I will know.

Here goes the first one...

The fresh grass quivers
under the chilling night's wind.
It misses the sun.

*sips tea*

Earth, sky, and ocean
fuse under overwhelming
and obscure vigor.

Silence seeps in like
toxic gas. Planes fall upward.
It's war out there, boys.

*sips milk*

I'm in Omega too, btw, but idk how to put the pic on my signature. :/

I love this idea!

The hungriest birds
will never know what it's like
to sleep in a nest.

This one is called Take Things Slow

The faster you fall,
the easier love may spoil.
Use a parachute.

Awesome, Omega bros! Wait, but how did you manage to change your sig at all without figuring out how to add a picture to it? (0_0) I hope this diagram helps. The only thing I left out is how to navigate there lol.

Thanks for your help, Elephly! :D I'm really enjoying reading all of these haikus, btw...

2 in 1 cuz tomorrow I'm busy:

We try so hard to
make things work. All we need is
another sylla-

Change is legacy:
To touch a thousand hearts with
tomorrow's promise.

The body feels impatient.
a stuttering sigh

I like you haikus guys. They're giving me more ideas.
Here's another called Familiar Melodies...

With a single note,
joy flooded into her heart.
She was young again.

Whoops. Missed a day.

tangled in a web
Be pardoned from gravity
and learn to suspend.

Don scaly armor,
And kindle your inner flame;
Awake, o dragon!


With a dragon's mind and heart and soul, I exist in this world, separate and detached, yet inexplicably one with it...

Response to A Haiku a Day 2014-06-14 09:29:23


This one is titled Painful Memories and How to Prevent Yourself From Getting New Ones (which also happens to be a haiku :3 )...

This precious moment
may be preserved if we can
fall asleep and die.

Bliss in a bottle.
Sent out to sea. I only
hope yours will find me.

Before the Crash

A dark smoky hazy
with figures dancing away
the night. Ecstasy.

Eyelashes wave like

Too much mascara.

The fire burns hot
My heart, certainly, does not
Icy are the dead


Life is a party.

You are not invited.

It bends and molds,
can suffocate, yet breathe life,
bearing no burden.

Haha! I like it! Sounds like the flavor text to a Magic: the Gathering card. XD

@Elephly I think I'm going to start titling my works too:

Singing

Lift your voice to the
heavens. Pain drips down to earth.
Cathartic like rain.

Expectations

As I snatched his hand,
his trust hinged on my judgement.
But I let him slip.

Thanks for keeping the haikus coming guys. I love reading haikus for some reason.
Also, I made a spelling mistake in my last one D: Oh well lol

Wow. I got my numbers mixed up. Dismiss that horrid one.

Lines flow unto lines
Patterns form from many lines
The cycle doth flow.

Aw, I like reading all of your haikus, too, everyone! :D
Bicycle Accident

She holds me tighter.
Her shoelaces choke the gears.
What a bad idea.

Damn. No more haikus since I was at this thread yesterday. Oh well! The creativity keeps on flowing:

Calling my Sister a Bitch
Mouths become numb with
anger. Cold words freeze solid
yet disperse like gas.

;)

Oops, I was busy yesterday. Got home too late.
Anyways, this one is called Green Sheep

Rays dye the skies pink.
Fluffy clouds form into sheep.
Land sheep are jealous.

Haha, I really like that one! It's clever/cute! ;)

2-in-1 again; tomorrow's another busy day.

Camping
Furtive whispers dance
in the dangers of open
flame late in the night.

Solitude
Melancholy knows
no remedy, but sadness
is what we all seek.

Vanity

Bold eyes piercing mine.
Muscles flexing behind glass.
“Damn, I look SO fine…”

Loneliness

Feeling lost without
your touch. It’s been forever
since I last held you.

A thousand blades of

on damp morning earth.

I wash my placemat
once a week. Every week
it tells a story.

but just in short bursts.

Aw, I like this idea! I really like a lot of these.

Last Summer

When I think of you,
my thoughts turn to last summer.
Things weren't all bad, right?
