OK, maybe I was sleeping that day in school (or in shop class), but aren't these poems supposed to rhyme? :thinking:

Traditionally, no. I do not believe that haiku generally rhyme. They are quite subtle, and are only "poems" in the sense that there are constraints placed upon the meter (not constraints, exactly...but I digress), and follow a 5-7-5 syllable pattern.

Smokelaw is correct
In Haiku definition.
It is so simple.

The new Ti haiku
My credit card is ready
Brilliant Master Don!

Hope to catch the wave
Whales must have been too far out
Next week got here quick!

Looking forward to tomorrow afternoon... will be checking in regularly. Really, my boss is understanding. I know, ugh. No haiku since high school.:)

I'm looking at some of your post counts, and feel like the new guy on the block. Worry not, if I am fortunate enough, it will have a good home.

Now excuse me as I must go sell some lights!

The inspiration
For this light has spread throughout
The dimly lit world!
:candle:

The Haiku will make
The whole world a brighter place
I'm so excited!
:grin2:

I love the new look
Of the ribbed titanium.
What could be better?
:shrug:

:bow:

Before the Haiku
Lights bow in adoration
Struck by its beauty

Loveit's haiku's rule
And stand above all the rest
Genius at work here:thumbsup:

His head wears no hair:devil:

In light of 5-7-5 (rules :rolleyes: :nana: )


To quench desire
A fresh horizon to view
I give you haiku

It's not a poem
Its a bloody light you twit
But the whales do sing
