wand'ring chaste playa
revel in comraderie
seeking diff'rent aims

RULES FOR HAIKU:
1) THREE LINES - 5-7-5 SYLLABLES
2) 1ST TWO LINES DESCRIBE SOMETHING
3) 3RD LINE TURNS IT INTO AN ANALOGY OR METAPHOR
4) IF POSSIBLE, ONE OR MORE LINES WITH INTERNAL ALLITERATION

Note: In Japanese Haiku, there is usually a reference to one of the four seasons.

How about this way, SJ? The last line is not a analogy or a metaphor, but does speak to the eternal optimisim of blah, blah, blah....

Wish I could claim credit for this one, but it's too good not to share.

Damn A haiku by Joe

I came in here to
shit and stink but all I do
is sit and think, "Damn."
“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.”

I just scratched my balls
and totally averted
the wrath of the gods

sorry other thread
screwed a Mayan calendar
for my amusement

a haiku can make
the worst bodily functions
somewhat poetic

playa haikus

Post by orangepeelmoses » Mon Aug 09, 2004 3:56 am

wake up at lunchtime
filthy from previous night
water truck shower

hitchhiking mantis
praying in the playa dust
no mate to dine on

ABSINTHE BAR OR BUST
under the spell of the faerie
Bernie Manson's MAD

perfect panties day
surprise dust devil blindside
pedal madly home

Trixie the pixie
plays piano nearly nude
with wings on her back

butterfly beings
swarm El Circo Saturday
slurping Bassnectar

Alpha-Bits snacktime
doze off in high noon sunshine
sunburn says, "EAT ME"

quarter-mile long
Drive-Thru Confessional line
the Pope would be proud

Larry is way cool
transforms lumber into Man
Jesus liked wood too
