    Drinking unlabeled tea bag.
    Hope it's not senna!

    Listening to tunes.
    Chill station on Spotify.
    Better than Bieber.

    Listening to the
    neighbor's cat yowling in heat.
    Better than Beiber.

    Cat got run over.
    Rolling around in the street.
    Sounds like Nickleback.

    Bumping this thread is
    now a compulsive habit.
    Trolling makes me smile.

    Yowling cat in heat,
    please drown out the cackling sound
    of Nicki Minaj.

    I was here.
    You were not.
    Pencil.

    This is NOT written in haiku format. For shame!!! :laugh:

    <~~ B.A in creative writing. And not to be a jerk, but since you are a poetry teacher surely you must know that a haiku does not have to always be 5-7-5 :flowerforyou: :drinker:

    What's wrong with senna
    PapaverSomniferum?
    Should I hate it, too?

    True...IF you are writing a haiku in its origin language (because it may not translate to 5-7-5 in English.) As a Language Arts teacher (poetry is just one of the concepts I teach), I ask my students to stay true to form. Thus, I teach them that, if you do not follow the rules of a specified poetic form, it should be considered "free verse."

    In my class, if you turned in your poem as a "haiku" assignment, I would assume you didn't understand the syllable pattern and grade you accordingly. My poetry professor always said..."If it's not 14 lines of iambic-pentameter verse, beginning with three quatrains and ending in a couplet, with a rhyme scheme of a-b-a-b-c-d-c-d-e-f-e-f-g-g, don't call it a Shakespearean Sonnet"

    Anyhow- kudos for being creative, I admire that! :flowerforyou:

    Edit for a haiku...

    I like being right.
    I will tell you when you're wrong.
    Listen and take notes.

    That's too much talking.
    I'd give you a bonus for
    a haiku reply.
  • KrisyKatKrisyKat Member Posts: 749 Member Member Posts: 749 Member
    Words are fabulous!
    Take the time to read them all;
    You'll learn something new.

    He's cooking dinner?
    That is incredibly kind:
    I hope it's sausage.
