FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING 60th Anniversary Haiku Challenge!!! Can't Post

In honour of The Fellowship of the Ring's 60th Anniversary, this haiku challenge is for a creation with a FotR theme. Don't be afraid... these really are fun and very addictive :)

What is HAIKU?
Originating in Japan, poets started writing traditional English haiku in the 1950's composed of 3 lines of 5-7-5 syllables. The last words in each line do not need to rhyme. Check out the example below.


So it begins
(by gramma 7/29/14)

Road goes ever on ...... (5 syllables)
Down from the door, it began ...... (7 syllables)
Finding Fellowship ...... (5 syllables)


Sam, Dear Sam
(by gramma 7/29/14)

Dragons, trees and elves
makes me wonder what may be
down ol' Bilbo's roads

But taters and herbs
are the business of Gamgees,
my ol' gaffer says


CHECK OUT MORE GAMES AND MAGPIE'S FOOTERS OVER ON MAIN!!

From one of my favorite scenes: [In reply to] Can't Post

Frodo and Sam spy
Wood elves walking through the trees
Magical to see

“As such, you will address His Majesty as His Majesty, the Lord of Silver Fountains, the King of Carven Stone, the King Beneath the Mountain, the Lion of Erebor, the High King of the Dwarves, the True Treasure of Erebor, the Face that Launched 10,000 Sighs, or Thorin the Majestic..."

Daddy Twofoot came
Taters by Hamfast to eat
Left full with a burp.

Charge of the Light Brigade? [In reply to] Can't Post

To Mordor they came
The wrath of the Dunedain
By horse and on foot

With a will of steel
Distracting all, securing
Return of the king

A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.

Hmmmm..... [In reply to] Can't Post

A Haiku challenge?
Now how many syllables?
Goodness this is hard!

(That was just awful.
I’m not very good at these.
I think I will pass.)

Ok, I'll try to wax poetic [In reply to] Can't Post

Hobbits walking soft
Under stars and beyond sight
Only the fox sees

Inn keeper, ale brewer
Hardworking, forgetful host
Butterburr he is


I can't come up with 60 so I guess 2 will have to do! Smile

A piece of Shadow [In reply to] Can't Post

”Wish you to see them?”
Gandalf a query to Frodo,
“They are terrible!”

“No! Why in my time?
What am I to do dear friend?”
“What does your heart say?”
