First Date Haiku

October 24, 2015 28 comments

Dan Alatorre issued a challenge to write a Haiku, a 5-7-5 “syllable” (syllable is the closest we can get to the actual definition) scheme. He provided a link to a random topic generator and we have to write a Haiku on whichever topic appears first (no constantly clicking the button until a “sensible” topic comes up!).

So I clicked on it this morning and got this:

“What’s the worst thing you can say on a first date?”

Oh, Hell. But rulz is rulz. And to be fair, after writing this I clicked a few more times just to see what I could’ve won, and I think I got off quite easily. So here it is!

“Is that your real face?”
Swift knee to groin ends my dreams
Foot in mouth again.

I did try to do more than one but everything came out rather rude :-(.

I have optimistically placed this post in my “Poems” category.

A Poem Poem

Having read this over I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. But I’m going to hit “Publish” anyway!
Just a bit of fun 🙂

There’s one thing I can’t do
And that thing’s a poem
There’s them say I’m rubbish
So I thought “I’ll show ’em”!

There’s long poems, short poems
All different sorts
Some of them quite profound
Others mean nought.

There’s some lines that rhyme
And there’s others that don’t
Some lines are couplets
And sometimes they float.

A haiku’s a poem
That comes from Japan.
It’s carefully structured
I’m quite a big fan!

Ideas in words
Structured in punctuation
Mind blowing colour.

So come on you writers
And give it a go!
You might be quite good
You just never know.
