**Party Time!** What HAIKU been doing? Can't Post

WELCOME to a Week of Special Magnificence as we celebrate the 80th Anniversary of The Hobbit publication; the 40th Anniversary of The Silmarillion publication; and a most excellent Birthday Party for Bilbo and Frodo on September 22.

Let's have some Hobbit / Sil / Baggins Birthday HAIKUs

Japanese haiku have been traditionally composed in 5-7-5 syllables. When poets started writing English haiku in the 1950's, they adopted this 5-7-5 form, thinking it created a similar condition for English-language haiku. This style is what is generally considered "traditional" English haiku.


I'll kick it off with this:

What a special month!
It's in 2017
as September fades

Twoscore of separation
twixt Hobbit and Sil revealed.
Oh Happy Days!

"When autumn came, he knew that part at least of his heart would think more kindly of journeying, as it always did at that season." [In reply to] Can't Post

Old leaf spirals down
I shoulder my pack and
Make new beginnings

It is difficult to get Hobbits up and out their doors on adventures. [In reply to] Can't Post

Nasty, disturbing,
and uncomfortable things.
Sorry, not today!

"Nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things! Make you late for dinner!" [In reply to] Can't Post

'Tis **Party Time**, YAY!
Hobbit, Sil, Birthdays a pair.
Joy, delight, for all!

‘. . . the rule of no realm is mine . . .
But all worthy things that are in peril . . . those are my care.
For I also am a steward. Did you not know?'

Middle-earth haikus? [In reply to] Can't Post

That sounds very difficult!

I can’t think of one.

******************************************
Queen Beruthiel, Queen Beruthiel, there's no one like Queen Beruthiel,
She's broken every Gondor law, she breaks the law of Earendil.
Her powers of feline-ation would make Aiwendil stare,
And when you reach the scene of crime - Queen Beruthiel's not there!
You may seek her in the Hallows, you may search throughout the square –
But I tell you once and once again, Queen Beruthiel's not there!

live near the shore, and captured

A Haiku, by Meowyn Melonhelm [In reply to] Can't Post

I lick your eyebrows.

I drag my claws down your cheek.

Oh, you're up? Feed me,
