CSR has me thinking HAIKU

  1. Capt. Stream Rotar's writing style brings back my HAIKU hobby days. Of course my Haiku was foul and humorous. Since we are in the dog days of summer I'll take the first leap. No real rules in Haiku for us english language folks.

    LANDSCAPERS
    Dream to be with nature
    From irritator eyes
    How different than homeowner?

    My concept of haiku was formed by reading James Bond stories (You Only Live Twice) and I would try for lines of five and seven syllables.

    Dumb tire kickers
    ants, bees, and prickers
    Winter cannot come too soon
     
  3. The rules are very strict in Japan but our language doesn't conform to true Haiku style so I go for connecting two separate thoughts as close to the Haiku style I can get.

    Astros cannot hit
    Make a trade for Aubrey Huff
    Still can't suck enough

  5. Can Alex be Reggie?
    Bonds trumps his team
    Red Sox sleep again

    Make some coffee so
    I'm awake to serve
    the hissing of Summer lawns
     
  7. Boots gotta go
    Misquitoes need to be fed
    Sweat dirt thenBEER

    Works for me. I'm more of a limerick guy myself.
     
  10. Well boots is being nice but you need two separate thoughts connected by a sentence.That is just a long sentence. Try as much as you can to get 7 syllables then 5 syllables then 7 again.
