Here's what happened to me today in 3 haikus. Most common haiku is 3 short lines, 5 syllables the first line, 7 the second and 5 more syllables the last line. Started discussions Got too many responses Fingers are hurting. ©SaintAnne ----- Washed dirty pink walls Blue-taped door frames and baseboards Painted for first time. ©SaintAnne ----- Worked for four long hours Body tired, mind is drifting Still I wrote haikus. ©SaintAnne You want to try describing your day this way?

I love it, drannhh!!! You are missing one syllable on the second line but because it is SO good, I will let it slip. I can just imagine your day now. Thank you a lot!

I pronounced lovely with 3 syllables, that makes 7 in the line. Your copyright symbol is awesome! WTG: Dinner was divine Crispy oven roasted ribs Pasta on the side! Is it improper to have all three lines of a Haiku rhyme if they still have the right number of syllables?

I have always know about haikus but have to admit that this is ther first time I have ever really understood what formed the basis of one! I will have to give this some more thought and see if I can come up with one. Hopefully I can get my head around this and return!

Hahaha. Seems you were reading my mind perfectly SaintAnne! But did I get the concept of a haiku right in my example or not? I am not 100% sure about the word "early" as being one syllable but I think the rest is correct. The haiku you made for me is very apt and I think the only thing I would change is the final word.

You've got it all wrong This was no friendly dragon! It was wicked mean! Later in the day, following that fiasco, I took a ride to Franklin. Which provided me the best opportunity to increase my fortitude.

Good one, glords. You're not supposed to do repeats or something like that but in your case, with what you are going through with your son, I'm still going to give you an A+.

I didn't know you couldn't do repeats... too bad my life is so repetitious. I guess I better write hikus about something more interesting.
