    Default Socratov's brainfarts collection - Now with haikus!

    Damn it feels good to be a warlock.
    A real blasta-ass warlock keeps blastin',
    a real blasta-ass warlock never has no spells.
    'Cause a real blasta-ass warlock just invokes.

    And all I gotta blast you with are
    Hellrime, Brimstone and vitriolic blasts.
    'Cause when the Hellfire comes around, what you gonna do?
    Damn it feels good to be a warlock

    ladies and gentlemen (and anything in between if You consider yourself not in either of thsoe categories),

    I hereby open for you the possibility to request a haiku.

    or just for the occasion?
    Ask and I will craft!


    To get a haiku,
    tell me what you will demand.
    Information helps.

    No telepathy,
    neither leaving me guessing,
    give it all to me.


    Have you given all?
    Then summon all your patience.
    A haiku is made.

    Socratov, you are one strange caballero. But I'd hate to see such a good offer go to waste.

    Since you're offering, I would like a haiku written concerning the situation in my avatar. There's not much information to convey that isn't immediately visible: one's a human rogue with a thing for purple, the other's a gold half-dragon monk with a thing for books; the former believes that he's stealthy and that a half-dragon would make a fine dagger repository, and the latter would like to disillusion him on both accounts. Their names aren't important, and any further details I leave for you to ask about or invent.

    If I like it, I'll proudly post it in my signature.

    If I made an avatar for you and it is malfunctioning, it is because of updates being made to the image hosting site I use (imageshack). Please let me know, I will see to it that you get a functioning link or the original image file.

    *flexes fingers*

    How grand that you love the art of Haiku as much as I do. Here's a series:

    Daring and daunting
    dagger in hand he doth stabs
    A dragon's back sheath


    Purple versus gold
    Such grand overconfidence!
    Taken by his throat


    Surprising dragons
    Takes more wiles and sharper wits
    Disillusionment


    Predator turned prey
    Dangling helplessly at length
    Dragons always win



    (If you only want one Haiku to show, the bolded one captures most of the scene as I feel it)

    Please feel free to tell me if you like it or not

    I like haiku, so I suggest you read this at least before making any more if you do too.

    Like it? I love it.

    This is a lovely little series, with a good mix of the serious and the silly. The second stanza does capture the scene very well, but to me the fourth stanza is the very best. Perhaps that's because it works the best when read outside of context, or perhaps it's because it has the best concluding line ever. Seriously, I laughed when I reached that line.

    The third stanza seems weaker to me; I'm not sure how well the one-word final line flows with the rest of it, and "wiles" sounds like a two syllable word in my head. Yeah, I looked it up, it's a one-syllable deal, but it still throws me off a bit. As a whole though, the series paints creates an atmospheric and flowing scene. I'm keeping this. Thanks so much!

    It's certainly interesting, however modern school english haku enjoys some freedoms which creates more to my creativity. However, I'm planning to learn Japanese at some point, so that would expand my haiku horizons some more

    glad you love it! Yeah, I had much fun with the last line as well (got it fairly early in the process). On the one word line, it helps to pretend to be a wise old man of the asian persuasion and then reading it out loud. Then it all makes sense

    If that one article doesn't convince you to change your ways, try these other ones: Why "No 5-7-5" and some of the pages linked there, particularly What Is a Haiku—And What Isn’t and then maybe Becoming a Haiku Poet. There's more to haiku than fitting words into 5-7-5 boxes; without those further considerations, what you're writing isn't haiku at all.

    Oh my...

    well, to be honest, writing a haiku in English is impossible (like any other western language). It's a traditional Japanese language art dealing with something similar to, but not syllables. since English doesn't have those, a concession was made to syllables for the general public. And yes, I am well aware that I write something more akin to senryu, focusing more on quirky people instead of nature. But do know that senryu is not something the general public is familiar with, while (pseudo) haiku is. And as I said, I probably won't write any real haiku (as far as the official rules are concerned) until I read and write some Japanese. For now (for the benefits of the general public and poetic licence) I keep to my incorrect ways. Until I Learn Japanese that is, then I'll compose the Haiku in japanese and add a translation. Please forgive me for now.

    Good point! However, sometimes reality can be that spice to liven up your fantasy...

    Roll the die like Ceasar:
    Alea jacta est!
    I put it to the test.
    Have I gone too far?

    Gone for broke.
    Went all out.
    Left is doubt,
    and a bit of hope.

    Bared my heart,
    laid my soul,
    I have done my part.

    Trust the roll,
    no fresh start,
    get the goal.
