An Hiaku

Hiakus are easy.
But sometimes they don't make sense.

KLT Hiaku challenge

"Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

Give us your best effort.

Re: An Hiaku

Flying through the air
There is time to contemplate
The corner just missed

I made that up all by myself....I'll be here all week...try the veil!

Re: An Hiaku

Small poem I would give
But Haikus are so easy
It's not worth my time

Re: An Hiaku

I'm too demented
To get these poems cemented
It's too regimented

Re: KLT Hiaku challenge

There is another requirement for Haiku: the first two lines pose a problem or a question or define a philosophical situation, and the fifth line solves the problem, answers the question, or makes the deepest possible observation of the philosophical situation. This last requirement is what makes true Haiku extremely difficult.
