She's studying haiku in school. And so she's composing on the fly, counting every syllable.

She laid this one on me during a Wesley-walk on Friday:

The dog's upset. Bark!
Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark! Bark!
Bark! Bark! Shut up, dog!

;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Eric (Bearsdad) should post some of his haiku. He's done some dandies! Remember when he got us all going a couple of years ago? It was fun! :)

Nathan's good, too. If I ever get elected JL King again (Pah - fat chance!), my decree is going to be for an all-Haiku day. All postings need to be 5 x 7 x 5 syllables.

Writing a haiku
About haiku, taxes brains
How very meta!

Three lines of free verse, dictated by the # of syllables in each line.

Five
Seven
Five

Good try for Stace, but
Doesn't has two syllables
Line three's over, too!

I loved haiku ... I still have a book where we wrote some in school. This was my first one:

Slimy little frog
On the lily pad he sits
Then into my shoe.

;D ;D ;D

G'day,

Dan - Proof that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree mate :)
And for what its worth, here's a half-arsed attempt from me at 6:34am:

Still awake at Morn,
Project driving me crazy,
**** long day ahead.

Cheers,

Pottsie

:D Well, easy to see where she got that, huh Dan? :D

I love haiku. I saved some of you all's haikus about Angus' tick on his _ick. :D

Several years ago I was on a committee to improve company morale. No wonder morale sucks now...I'm no longer on the committee. ANYWAY...one of the things I did was hold a poetry contest for Valentine's day. :D People sent poems, and every hour I would email one to the staff on V-Day. There were some **** funny submissions, but I saved the best for the last. Here is my firm's winning haiku, from V-Day 2001:

My sweet Valentine,
She loves me, she loves me not;
She's a blow-up doll.

Maybe this is only funny if you know the guy who wrote it... :D

Nathan - Dawwww...

Connie - I Love that kind of corporate fun. When I was a director of corp comm for an insurance company (the best job, bar none, that I ever had -- and it was eliminated), our Veep would let us do fun stuff like that all the time. Photo contest, trivia, all kinds of morale-building activities.

The dungeon I'm presently working couldn't build morale with a hodful of bricks and a blueprint.....

A soul-sucking firm
Treats employees like chattle
I need a new job!
