**Founders Day - A little Haiku Anyone? Can't Post

Haiku have been traditionally composed in 3-line segments of 5-7-5 syllables. It doesn't have to rhyme, which works great for me!!!! Let your muse go nuts and have some fun :D

Founders Day times 12

A decade plus 2,
One dozen summers and falls
TheOneRing is here!

The Lord of the Rings
was the one that launched TORn's star
And drew us all here.

Who could ever guess
We'd be here for all this time?
12 years to the day!

So we celebrate!
It's a Day for our Founders
The tree gets a leaf.

But it's our Day, too
And we Party our Pants off
Like only TORn can :)

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Here's one off the top of my head! [In reply to] Can't Post

I came to this place
Not so sure what to expect
Tolkien brings us joy!


My mom tends to be much better at these than I am.

What do I have in my pocket?
Pure, frightening doom

Haiku for "12 Years of TORn!" [In reply to] Can't Post

I've never done this before... so here goes my first shot at haiku especially for TORn's 12th. Please don't laugh (in public anyway Wink).

I once came upon
a site by the name of TORn,
where LOTR geeks

spent days, months, and weeks
discussing all things Tolkien
and Peter Jackson.

But TIME, SCODs, and MISCs,
Geeky Observation Lists,
were only a tithe

of this great website.
What set it great leagues apart
were TORnadoes, sibs

true-kin and greathearts.
12 long years have come to pass,
TORn's spirit still lasts!

I forgot to tell you how much I loved your haiku... [In reply to] Can't Post

... especially the lines "The Lord of the Rings was the one that launched TORn's star" and "The tree gets a leaf".

Those are very Tolkien-esque and only someone who really "gets it" could conceive of words such as this

*puts on Gandalf voice* I think there is more about you than meets the eye Cool

Ah! Apprehension [In reply to] Can't Post

I too came here not knowing what to expect... and if you'd have told me 10 years ago that I'd be writing haiku about a fansite dedicated to a move about a fantasy book, I might've looked at you all strange.

Heh heh! Aren't you glad you're here!? WinkHeart
