Right back at you
That is what people say
Ha, says I to you
One just isn't enough.

I am praying for you all, with sincerity and on occasion gritted teeth.

Mathew 5:43-44

I seldom think before I speak.
That requires patience, an art I have little practice in.

You may reject it
But I accept what I am
May I ask, do you?

I have. It is so.
Mutuality is ours.
Enjoy the comfort.

Two plus three is five
Three's factorial is 6
So what is five cubed

I don't like haikus
I find them really silly
But I like them now

Odd that this haiku
should be based on syllables
instead of moras.

Or is your language
syllable-timed instead of
being mora-timed?

I got lost; I heard ghosts sing

(c) Coldplay

"In My Place"

It is interesting how the lines are formed in haiku meter. Much of it works, except a few lines, which needed to be reworked to fit the 5-7-5 rule.

In my place, in my
place, were lines that I couldn't
change. And I was lost,

Oh yeah, I was lost
I was lost, crossed lines I should
not have crossed, I was

Lost, oh yeah. How long
must you wait for him? How long
must you pay for him?

How long must you wait
for him? I was scared, I was
scared, tired and underprep'

'ared, but I will wait
for you. If you go, if you
go, and leaving me

Here on my own, well
I will wait for you, yeah. How long
must you wait for him?

How long must you pay
for him? How long must you wait
for him? Singing please,

Please, please, come on and
sing to me, to me, me, come
on and sing it out,

Out, out. Come on and
sing now, now, now. Come on and
sing it. In my place,

In my place, were lines
That I could not change, and I
Was lost, oh yeah, oh

Yeah.

Darn, the meter left one word on its own... But I did use a modified lyric, which is probably wrong.

Sickle moon sweeping
leaf husks to the threshing floor;
cold but snowless winds.

Noon-time polishes
the palm trees, sporadic rains
make a fraud of fall.

November slinks by,
hoping I won't notice how
far I am from home.


Autumn in California makes me angsty.

Very nice. It has the whole seasonal theme down. Also, I feel your pain, though I'm missing San Diego as opposed to the other way around.

You forget that people wish to be somewhere like California during the winter... Remember the song "California Dreamin'"?

In the conlang Ilomi there are two forms of haiku-like poetry:

(quoted from: http://larrysulky.webs.com/ilomi/ilomi-poem.html)

Iloku is based on syllable counts, like Haiku. Because Ilomi words tend to be longer, the lines of Iloku are longer than Haiku lines. There are two forms of Iloku: Ilokuswe (Greater Iloku) has 5 lines with 9, 9, 11, 11, and 9 syllables; and Ilokutwi (Lesser Iloku) has 3 lines with 9, 11, and 9 syllables.

Here are two Iloku I wrote in 2006:

ilokuswe anyemata

ami eyo anke e atelu
ami eyo anlu e asoli
aki esi anyekoto u ami
alami ekanto anyofi ami
uwe ate epo ekila?


Greater Iloku: Beginning
I am sky and earth
I am moon and sun
Day sees my work
Night sings my happiness
Can you understand?

* * *
ilokutwi asoli

anyepulu enyufe alu
e atelu enyonyakamwa oyopi
a asoli ekoto oyofi

Lesser Iloku: Sun
Rain leaves this place
And the earth dries,
The sun works happily

Your devout haikus of fun
To be shared oh world!
