it is early today
waking at 6 is no fun
a long day is nigh

There is no escaping it

That host with their banners at sunset were seen:
Like the leaves of the forest when Autumn hath blown,
That host on the morrow lay withered and strown.

Arisen and new,
From the deep depths of non-use,
The thread is revived.


People usually think that I've lost my mind. I haven't lost it, I know exactly where it is: the gutter.

My body is a temple. That is why I make chocolate sacrifices in it every day.

Jon or John we ask,
Hero of green power,
Or truths champion?

Zombie green come in,
Gleemax where the brain doth lair,
Evil eats it self.

[spoiler]I'm new to haiku. Are words such as green promounced as one hard word, or gre-een?[/spoiler]

When writing haiku,
Count syllables exactly
As you would say them.

Sound advice sounds good,
Perhaps perfection is,
The sound of haiku,

Haiku are fun but
Sometimes they do not make sense.
Let's optimize it!

Optimise sense?,
Beautiful haiku need no,
Sense if their fu.

Your first line only
has four syllables in it
as does your last line...

You are correct, sir.
Do not optimize their sense,
Go the other way.

A man walks away.
