Haiku Page

8 Sep

In a desparate and shameless attempt to showcase my “poetic” side I have started a page called Haiku which clearly shows you why I do what I do.

    Not bad; all but #3 at least mention a season, which is one of the Haiku rules?

    Vijay, Can you let us know the rules for Haiku and if are also allowed to post in your blog?

    @My3: Took this description from a Web Site.. these are the basic rules.. but there are others like the one BPSK mentions above
    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.

    Of course you are welcome to post… I can create a user name for you if you wish or you can send me the post via email and I will post it with credits. Let me know

    Vijay is into Haiku
    That is so cool
    Its poetry at its best
    with just a need for jest

    I’m sure that’s not haiku or that even makes sense. Just for laughs:))

    Well, my name’s Vijay too. Not a great surprise as quite a good % of Vijays in our population. I started reading your entries a couple of days back and I must blame that a lot of my “official” time is getting eaten! Your haiku follows the rules but maybe not pro 😉 Its funny though. Just reminded me of something a friend of mine Aju, did … Sayiku as it is called.

    @vijay: Please come back and waste some more time 😉 I will gladly take the blame… thanks for the “Sayiku” link… very talented.. way beyond my capabilities 😦
