    Haiku Thread

    I'm starting a haiku thread. It doesn't have to be strictly 5-7-5 (most of mine aren't) but it can be about anything you want, OLS-related or otherwise. For some inspiration, this article has some examples: https://www.tofugu.com/japan/haiku/

    I'll start us off:

    The little robins
    beating their wings against
    the last of autumn's winds
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him....

    Here are a couple more that I came up with on a walk today:

    A cloud of gnats
    and a sliver of blue sky
    peeping through

    A cloud of gnats
    fooling around
    in autumn's leftovers
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him....

    About time I updated this thread. Here's a tanka I wrote a few minutes ago:

    "Silently, androids
    Carry literary loads
    Into black wormholes,
    Floating through a fantasy
    In the author's limitless head."

    It's also an acrostic, so look out for that.
