Not thinking at times
Is the most serious of crimes.
(Like my haiku rhymes?)

Christmas is coming
the goose is getting thinner
damn this recession!

Doglet is circling
his dish with two hot pork chops
and bites. Bliss: cool water!

The deadly power of the Haiku

At this site you can make your own tanka (like a haiku, but five lines: 5-7-5-7-7) in Japanese (click on "Explore the Scroll" and then "Create your own poem"). They only have set phrases you can choose from to construct your poem (they have to since it's in old Japanese), but it makes your poem sound very authentic.

And the obligatory haiku:
そのサイト (so no sa i to) = At that site
短歌作れる (ta n ka tsu ku re ru) = You can make a tanka
してみてね! (shi te mi te ne!) = Try it!

Seven syllables
it's not there, you put it here
on the middle line

For this time of year in Australia: (and when I venture out between 6-6.30am for the newspaper - it's a trick now to see the rolled up bundle among the liquidambar leaves on the driveway.)

Falling autumn leaves,
Golden yellow, red and brown,
Crunching underfoot.

Once upon a time
Happily ever after
Disney owns that now


Five, seven and five
Give seventeen syllables
Primeval format

Timelord Doctor Who
Has a TARDIS that is blue
This is a Whoku

Haiku haunts Harry's
Hypnogogic holiday
Alliteration

An apostrophe
At the start of the third line
Would have been more droll

bobwilson is right
Punctuation would have made
A big difference

So much depends on
whether difference has two
syllables or three
