    I wrote this to my husband, and left it at his desk at work when he was away (yes we work for the same company). Written in pencil.

    I was here.
    You were not.
    Pencil.

    People assume that
    all you need for Haiku is
    a few short phrases

    You know what they say
    about people who assume?
    I don't know, either.

    (The tl/dr the entire thread. Hopefully no one else has done this yet...)
    A haiku about getting out of bed:
    No no no no no
    No no no no no no no
    No no no no no

    Birds Fly and Kids die
    In this world filled with miseries
    Only Love is something good

    I first read this as
    "Birds Fly and Kites die"; must be
    summer tragedy.

    Belly like jelly
    Stretch marks and C section scars
    Love's incubator

  • Not food related:

    English:

    Crystal Rain falls
    Masking falling crystal tears
    -flowers bloom yet.

    Japanese:
    雨降りて
    涙隠して
    咲く花よ

    It say's the same thing. I wrote this for my Japanese Literature class. :p Corrected it in my Japanese language class!

    Strict on the rhyme scheme,
    Grades on quatrains and couplets;
    Shakespeare would be proud!!

    I just LOVE penguins
    They are so fluffy and cute
    In their dinner suit!

    Always overdressed.
    Why must the penguins show off?
    It's just Applebee's.

    I dress up at times.
    People think it's old lady
    night at junior prom.

    I'd take you to prom.
    We'd pretend to chaperone
    but we'd spike the punch.

    I don't drink often.
    but when i do, it's spiked with
    LSD and rum.

    Dog and cat in love
    At my feet, end of the bed
    Dog sleeps on cat's butt

    The gym is empty, quiet.
    This hour is my own.
