Haiku? Gesundheit!

Postby MarylandManson » Sat Dec 31, 2005 12:16 pm

As KAMIKAZE approaches, anyone want to turn Japanese? It might be fun to craft haiku, a Japanese lyrical form with a simple formula of three lines: first one of five syllables, then seven syllables, then five syllables for the last line. As shown by the following examples, they can range from the Zen-like to the ridiculous...

*****

chrysanthemum floats
divine wind, death wafts eastward
from fragrant harbour

*****

Special X thriller
Michael Slade's KAMIKAZE
November oh six

*****

Godzilla monster
Atomic breath burns buildings
Must battle Mothra

*****

Haiku? Gesundheit!
Slade's SWASTIKAMIKAZE
World War Two opus

*****

I'm curious to see what
Others have to say

Destiny or fate
A question of the ages
Kamikaze waits

slyragz and fizz kick: Your haiku are making the wheels turn. Do you mind if I wake some wallpaper images that draw from them?

MM - like you have to ask? This kind of interaction is what makes us Sladists, right? You just made my day, big guy.

I cover my ears
to muffle the deafening roar

Asian or Marine?
Death for a nation's future
Dishonor is worse

If you can't beat them
Make them pay dearly in blood
Pyrrhic victory

*****

But what about love?
Is there no room for romance
In a Slade forum?

O Rose thou art sick
The invisible worm flies
Words by William Blake

Where's the bat, Wendy?
I want to bash your brains in
Wendy! Heeeeeeere's Johnny!

"Marine" Nicholson
Says, "You can't handle the truth!"
He chews scenery

Sorry abut this
Blame it on insomnia
Headache therapy

On that note, goodbye
Until the next time we meet
Now it's dark! MM

Rich in gifts, they number three
