I was born one day, a spawn of this thread and this. We'll see what happens.
Rule One All posts in haiku and all comments in haiku, let us inspire.
Post thoughtful, profound, or cheesy haiku, or just plain horribly written 'ku. Have entire conversations in haiku! Posts can be on any topic that is "Work Safe" (see rule 3), even promotions for other communities. Please just make sure it is in traditional 5-7-5 haiku format.
Rule Two Peaceful like the lamb This is not a place for war But beauty and love.
This is a place for expression and fun, not attacks. Constructive criticism is done politely; rudeness, obviously, is not... let's stick to the former, shall we? Thanks.
Rule Three Haiku is for all Let us mind our fellow man Seeking harmony.
Cursing is ok here. And we love it when graphics accompany a poem! Please put them behind a cut or thumbnail, for bandwidth purposes. Keep in mind, this community has members of all ages. Also, some of us view the page while at work. Because of this, posts must always be "work safe" and must not contain offensive material. This includes nudity of any type, and poems that are blatantly inappropriate.
A short Haiku Lesson
Made up of three lines, it's first has 5 syllables, second has 7.
The third finishes with 5 syllables again. It's Beauty Unleashed.
Haiku Weekly Theme You can find the rules right here. Write on, 'ku, write on.
