characters (with spaces)

File, Save As... "haiku"
Save as type: Word Document
(asterisk dot "doc")



<small>Commentary: "Well, this is certainly inane, but it could have been a lot worse. I mean, given the title. But, yes... The irony is unmistakable. I mean, to use a product like Word to compose haiku... It's like using a pneumatic socket gun to adjust your eyeglasses, or a fire hose to artificially inseminate a gnat. So, when readers come away with the understanding that Bill Gates is an irritating gnat... Well, who can say that's not beautiful?" ~Leslie M�sknvorr (noted haiku analyst)</small>

Of complication, despond and general distress;
are two nulls equal?
I fear both No and Yes!

[more for databases, than Java - but still applies]

Like as the waves make towards the pebbled shore,
So does my BuildAll hasten to its end.
Each adding error with that which goes before,
In frequent succession, all I can do is contend.
Control, once in the main() of a public class,
Crawls to execution, wherewith, each thread,
the Eclipse steps over to glory, But alas...
Reviewer that gave, doth now his comments I dread.
I bugfix with a flourish set on by the running clock.
And delve the Sun(site) in the darkness of the night.
Feeding on the surety their code trail truth shall unlock.
And nothing stands but for his all-knowing sight,
And yet, to Tester, in hope, my code shall withstand,
Praising my worth, despite his cruel command.

I read complete thread and didn't get anything from this thread.

For what we are discussing here..

Stealing this one from a T-Shirt I saw.

Haikus are easy,
but sometimes they don't make sense,
refrigerator.

And my own, dedicated to learning Java.

Trying to code well,
the compiler hates my guts,
tells me "go to hell".

Another error,
I missed a semi-colon,
I long for run time.

In addition to that, the first and third lines have 5 syllables, while the second line has 7 syllables. So some of the poems posted above are not proper Haikus.

the first and third lines have 5 syllables, while the second line has 7 syllables.
Not according to the wikipedia.quote:
The traditional hokku consisted of a pattern of approximately 5, 7, and 5 morae, phonetic units which only partially correspond to the syllables of languages such as English.

These discussions can get quite nasty in literary forums.


haiku's rebuttal

clever passages
syllabically broken
do not make haiku.

I think the essence of haiku transcends a syllable count, but a symmetry remains important to me. For example, a 2-4-2 pattern, or a 4-6-4 pattern...


cast

from a gray sky

grave

in times of snow
I remember the cold
