Yes, but they were at <a href="http://www.exploitationnow.com/">EN</a> a while ago. When they went here, I thought they somehow migrated to this board. What a strange coincidence!<P>------------------

Nah, glorp started at <A HREF="http://www.joe-the-circle.com" TARGET=_blank>Joe the Circle</A> with a post that said you could only reply using seven words. I turned that into the haiku idea on the Joe boards, then decided to bring it here as well. I don't read EN, so I didn't know they had it on their boards.<P>Either way, I think
haiku are far, far better
than glorp's usual.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

Is preferable to glorp.

I'm sorry, Lummox,

Haiku requirements.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

What was I thinking?
"Even" is 2 syllables.
I am so ashamed.<P>Lummox JR<P>------------------

Even though "even"'s long
You could always have used short "e'en"
Silly Lummox JR!<P>(To make that work out
I had to assume that the
"JR" is read as "jer"...)<P>Haiku? This ain't it --
but the 5-7-5 form
is still lots of fun.<P>------------------

It's Lummox Jay-Arr,
Which I guess rather ruins

Someone please explain.
What qualities do these lack
to be true Haiku?<P>Working class art, or
high falutin poesy stuff;
who decides what's best?<P>

<I>Since the Creature is busy trying to develop brain cells, I thought I might take a break and answer this one.<P>Structurally, a haiku is composed of three nonrhyming lines, the first and third with five syllables, the second with seven. Most of you are following the structure.<P>But these aren't true haiku, because true haiku also has a thematic aspect. It has been described as "a moment of intense perception" in which the poet deals both with nature and with humanity. A true haiku will therefore contain a nature reference, preferably one which places the poem in one of the four seasons, and it will reveal some aspect of the human condition.<P>In short, 5-7-5 unrhymed is the surface component, while a short, sharp flash of nature and human nature is the thematic.<P>--The Creature's narrator</I>

You're right, Michael, these
Hardly qualify as true
Haiku. But who cares?<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

Besides, its author
(Frodo by name), is an elf!
Now that's symmetry!<P>(And I agree, Fro' --
your haiku deserves the name;
Structure, content: both!)<P>Oops, didn't respond
to Strange Dave: in re "Who cares?"
