    A thread I have seen
    Buried no indication
    so this is for you.

    I tried. I'm not a pro at this in fact I just learned about this haiku stuff and thought it was beautiful stuff. So I'm practicing.

    I saw a thread that mentioned haiku on it but its buried and doesn't have any indication of it being a haiku thread so I figured I start one that you could all participate in.

    For those who don't know what a haiku is, this would be fun. You don't have to be good at it, I'd still love to see those haiku.

    A haiku is a short poem of Japanese origin with only three lines
    - the first line has 5 syllables, the second has 7 syllables and the last has 5 syllables.


    It usually encompasses one idea or emotion with at least a small break in the flow.

    So exhausted from
    an extended day at work
    Sleep is calling me. smile

    I'm not sure, but you might be referring to a post I made quite awhile ago: Hey Poets!

    It is about haiku, and trying to make a collection of haiku written by hubbers (and other readers, of course): Home of the Hub Haiku

    And, Paraglider's limerick hub: How to Write a Limerick

    Thanks for sharing your haiku!



    Oh, insomnia
    I'm unwillingly awake
    Sleep, the elusive

    Worker bees can leave
    Even drones can fly away
    The queen is their slave

    One of my favorites, from "Fight Club."

    Kittie sits on floor,
    Her gaze looks beyond me,
    Branches find their way.
