[Poetry] Haiku

Discussion in 'Art Museum' started by Za Sen, May 7, 2013.

    (For those of you who don't know, a haiku is a poem where the first line has 5 syllables, the second 7, and the third 5. Haikus come from ancient Japan)

    A Beautiful Game

    Play Forge of Empires
    Wait endlessly for supplies
    Collect and restart

    ~Za Sen

    The Costly Battle

    Destroy archers first
    Then move on to Legionnaires
    Not much left at end

    ~Za Sen

    The Battle for Diamonds

    I have few diamonds
    Just enough to buy ONE thing
    Which one will I choose...

    ~Za Sen

    (I think that my haikus are so great that I deserve diamonds as a reward from the managers, don't you?) :)

    Winter turns to spring
    The ice melts into water.
    No diamonds for you.

    What is "njub"?

    If it is pronounced "en-jub", then the last line has 6 syllables. Oops! It doesn't work!

    Njub is my 1337 version of n00b, first penned in 2004. I hate typing the damn numbers. ;)

    (( links provided, ya njub ))

    Or, in haiku...

    First penned in 04'
    Njub is 1337 version of n00b
    Hate typing numbers

    Line 2 has 10 syllables
    Haiku does no work


    It's best not to use
    The word beginning with "D"
    In a public place

    /Njub/is/1337/ver/sion/of/n00b/ looks like seven syllables to me.

    Edit: /nyo͞ob/ĭz/liːt/vûr/zhən/ŏv/no͞ob/ for the pronunciationally challenged.

    And how, exactly, do you pronounce 1337 using only one syllable? You do know what a syllable is, don't you?
  9. 1337... LEET... elite...

    Wow, giving 1337 language lessons on the net... never thought I'd see the day.

    Hehe, i gave you the link earlier, but here it is again ---> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leet

    excerpt: "Leet can be pronounced as a single syllable, /ˈliːt/, rhyming with eat, by way of aphesis of the initial vowel of "elite"."

    Or, in haiku:

    Single syllable
    I gave the link earlier

    Actually, for this particular word, Wikipedia is a reliable site. But, if you want more, we have:


    Or, for more academic examinations:

    To Hellstrom:

    Why complicate things
    With all this "techy" language
    It's a waste of time


    English is allowed
    Other languages are banned
    You just broke the rules...


    Anyways, let's please not let this get too competitive, I just wanted this to be a place where people can write good haikus.
