    I was inspired by a comment katekate made in a different thread....

    "I always feel like uncle greguncle greg's comments are written in haiku, then I start searching for their profound, underlying meaning..."

  11. form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables

    Eeek, are there not enough rules already?

    If I only knew what a syllable was.

  12. Nah PetesulPetesul, you should have a crack! As hawklordhawklord says, just use the 5-7-5 pattern. String any words together that you like, they just need to fit into 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. Eg:

    The vast open road (5)
    Warm sunshine beats on my back (7)
    Carry me away (5)

    You could always go for some free verse poetry, take uncle greguncle greg's original example:
    (If you rearrange the line brakes, it actually IS a haiku!)

    I like to think he's making a deep observation about baggage we all carry in life, and the importance of having people in our lives to share the load... he just wants us to think he's talking about an SW motech cargo bag.

    Poetry is the ultimate double entendre, which let's face it, is something most NR's excel in.

  15. If you want to get really technical about haiku then there needs to be a juxtaposition of two ideas... but it's hard enough already!
