    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 45-46 ~ Haiku Poems

    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 45-46 ~ Haiku Poems!



    This fortnight's art contest category is Literature - Poetry with the theme set as Haiku/Haikai. Haiku (haikai verse) is a very short form of Japanese poetry typically characterised by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas that consist of three phrases (keeping it simple 'cause the contest isn't about specialists). Here's a haiku tutorial and a sample:

    Quote Quote:
    Faceless, just numbered.
    Lone pixel in the bitmap-
    I, anonymous.
    - Chris Spruck

    "Haiku"

    "Tick Tock"

    Time is not a clock
    It's good and bad memories
    oh how short it is

    But the stink that filled the privy gave ample evidence that the oft-repeated jape about his father was just another lie. Lord Tywin Lannister did not, in the end, shit gold

    Haiku.


    Toy Soldiers stand tall.
    With plastic guns in their hands.
    Making "pew pew" sounds.

    Haiku

    Snore snore snore
    I hear from the other room
    Another sleepless night

    Haiku - "Dr. Pepper" - FaustXIII

    Twenty-three flavors combined
    Inside a red can
    Liquid of happiness
