Those earth-bound walkers
dream to fly while those sky-born
creatures fear to fall.
I.... I wrote a haiku.
I wrote a goddamn haiku.

THAT NEVER HAPPENS.

Yeah, that was kind of my mood. And thanks. :)
I wish I could write haikus more, but it's really difficult for me to figure out how to think in such short bursts.

I know you have to use the saying of kiss keep it simple stupid...lol at least that's how I do it. The hard part is saying something meaningful that fast. I love haiku just for he simplicity... my first haiku was when I was 5 and it was about my grandma's chicken and dumplings... hehehe

Heh, yeah. I'm not always good at that. I like to write prose because I can be as loquacious as I want to be with my stories and characters.

For me it depends on how creative I am that day. Do I want to write something that is simply statedor longer.

Thank you! :hug:
No, hardly ever. I sometimes get a nice line that would be good for a haiku, but I never seem to get the syllables right... normally, I just do free verse, or when I'm feeling ambitious, a sestina. If I remember correctly, the last time I really wrote a haiku was in third grade, during the poetry project, haha....

Well this is really good. :) A sestina? What's that?
Hah! XD

A sestina is a longer poem of six stanzas, where each line ends with a specific word. What you do is choose six words, and then write the lines with the patterns
ABCDEF
FAEBDC
CFDABE
ECBFAD
DAECFB
BCFEDA

It's kind of time consuming, but I really enjoy it.
(If you want an example, there's a sestina poem in my gallery called "Black and White, Blood and Wine")

Glad I could interest you! Sestinas really are my favorite type of form poetry.
