    Hey everypony. Thanks to a post made by Zephyr Wind, I just thought I'd give this idea a try. I've seen it used on another forum and it was fairly successful. So I figured why not try it here? The worst that could happen is that it fails miserably. XD

    The rules are simple:

    All you have to do is speak in Haiku.

    For those of you not familiar with Haiku, the structure is very simple:

    Line 1: 5 syllables.
    Line 2: 7 syllables.
    Line 3: 5 syllables.

    There are three lines, and each one has 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. That's it! No rhyming necessary.

    Feel free to have a conversation or post something brand new. It just needs to be in Haiku. Heh, that rhymed. They can be as profound or as silly as you like. Just as long as they don't break any of the forum rules. Okay, I'll start:



    I posted a thread,
    Post here along with me please,
    Much thanks in advance.

    In the air, flying

    A Sonic Rainboom.

    Eh, I gave it a try.

    Sweet, a haiku thread.
    I used to write these crazy.
    It's good to be back.

    But is three lines good?
    It's never enough for me
    So I write more, see?

    Haikus are great things.
    An excellent form of verse,
    And so easy too!

    I do like this thread.
    I can't wait to see more here!
    My verses are done.

    I hate all conflict,
    peace is always the best choice.
    A fool's dream I guess.

    This thread reminds me
    of a Spyro game I loved.
    Year of the Dragon.

    It had a level
    Where everyone spoke haiku.
    One of my favorites.

    Though my sickness stays,
    I feel comforted by my
    loving lightning colt~

    I must correct you,
    One extra syllable there
    In each line I see.

    Five Seven Five though
    Tough to stick with different
    Pronunciation.

    Regardless my love
    I know thy heart so dearly
    I love you darling <3

    I agree, Xiled.
    And yes, that first line is right.
    Pronounce it 'Ex-Iled'

    Nothing to say now,
    but my mind is way too full.
    Good and bad things both.

    Prior to this thread,
    I didn't care for haikus.
    Now I'm having fun!

    Now I'm getting bored.
    First five, then seven, then five.
    I don't understand.

    But hey, they're still cool.
    Now, to end on a high note...
    ...I love Lauren Faust.
