**Party Time!** What HAIKU been doing? Let's get hobbity! Can't Post

Let's have some Hobbity 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:



He saw lots of caves
one kingly and one deadly,
one with jools and swords

One was Lonely but
for a dragon now asleep
in the deep, bones white

Though the hardest was
riddled with sadness deeper
than the dark surround.

Now home in his hole,
clutter and books toppling o'er...
"Oh, how I missed this!"

~~All I want to do is join the happy crowd behind the green door~~ [In reply to] Can't Post

A hole in the ground.
A larder precious and full.
Happy the Hobbit.

. . . 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?'

Gandalf to Denethor

My humble contribution [In reply to] Can't Post

Took me all morning to come up with this - it's Monday after all:


Quest of thirteen Dwarves
A Hobbit and Wizard for
Long forgotten gold.

(sniff) However it's written/read/said, it reduces me to puddles every time. [In reply to] Can't Post

This is a bitter
adventure no gold amends
if it must end so.

Yet I am glad that
I have shared in your perils.
I deserve no more.

Food and cheer and song!
Value above hoarded gold
your merrier world.

But, sad or merry,
I must leave it now. Farewell,
and I call you 'friend'.
