Default it's haiku time

facebook takes up time
the summer falls to winter
i must get out more


this episode sucks
i miss the second season
where is the remote?


so many meetings
difts of paper work like snow
i need some matches


this dirty keyboard
the keys stick like winter mud
avoid letterxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


please pass me the crisps
they crunch like leaves in the frost
but do we have dip?


some thoughts are so small
only an angel could dance
my haiku is done


gaudy christmas comes
snow tinsel blah blah blah blah
bah! humbug says i


the notes are not clear
i must clean my glockenspiel
pass the cillit bang


many have asked me
why do i write these haikus?
it's like chewing gum


three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables with the second line mentioning something about the season.

and something for drummers:

my drum kit sounds good
the crowd heaves like a spring sea
oh no my stick broke


what groove should i play?
i cannot recall this song
this is not my band!

I love haikus. You're quite prolific and entertaining!

I heard this one the other day and thought it was clever:

If not for the cat
and the scarcity of cheese
I could be content

LOL, good one!

Reminds me of this non-haiku:

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
I'm not a good poet
As you can tell

Guitar player counts off tunes

Here's the best anti-Haiku song, ever written. My buddy Dusty, a singer-songwriter I was playing with a few years ago, came up with this while practicing his acoustic and singing to his cat. Seriously...he loves this cat...but he won't do Haikus for it.

I have one of both of us playing it, but you can't hear the lyrics clearly enough on it...so here's a solo copy.

here's my next haiku
hope Nutha Jason likes it
now back to my nap

must appease the mod
he says, "haiku", I do it
where is my freedom?

hope I don't get banned
Maybe I can make it up:
Ringo Starr's the best!

I am aghast that
our mod from not very long past
would break a fast rule

to post poetry
under the guise of haiku
without looking cool

It is not allowed

What is going on?

I don't understand
The implications of this
Have the rules now changed?

Here is one that I wrote when I was in about the third grade that I never forgot.
I got a "C" as a grade for it. I was pissed! I thought that it was good!
I cussed out the teacher and I got detention. The first of many detentions to come.
Thats why I never forgot the poem.
I never tried in school again after that! I never cared!
That teacher crushed me!

Spring is here again
The birds are singing sweetly
Soon summer will come

This one's eight syllables

Could my haiku skills
Be in need of improvement?
I'll just say 'maybe'

PQ, it is true
That you blew the syllables.
You must need more jazz.

May I recommend
Some Gene, Art, Elvin or Steve?
Man, those guys are bad.

I have seen some Gene
But the others, not so much
Perhaps it's jazz time.

It's a bit tricky -
Is "Steve" Gadd, Jordan or Smith?
I meant Gadd with Chick.

On the contrary
It means the use of less words
Than usually, Fuo*

*Assuming your name
Has only one syllable
Instead of Fu-o
