Guild of Greeters _ Artisans of D'ni _ Uru Haiku

Posted by: devonette Dec 13 2004, 09:50 AM

I've seen some fantastic Spam Haiku online, but haven't seen any Uru Haiku, so I issue a challenge to the poetic Artisans of D'ni! Let's see some Uru Haiku!

For those unfamiliar with it, haiku is a Japanese poem composed of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.

I'll start off(not the greatest, but you'll get the idea):



Oh, cruel Teledahn
You thwart my forward progress
With scope that won't track

Posted by: Gadren Dec 13 2004, 01:02 PM

Kadish Tolesa
Leaves falling from endless trees
Purple, grey, and black

Posted by: Mysti Sage Dec 13 2004, 02:28 PM

You think you see it,
But really, you have not seen.
Ghosts of what was.

Posted by: Gadren Dec 13 2004, 03:38 PM

you're missing a syllable on the last line, Mysti.

Relto, the high place
Fissures, pools, and sticks and stones
That get lost beneath

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 13 2004, 09:07 PM

Fire flies of Kemo
Let me pass with your brilliance
Now, back to Gira

Posted by: d'rbeh Dec 13 2004, 09:55 PM

please oh please help me
link in to any station;
maybe use some wings?

Posted by: devonette Dec 13 2004, 10:22 PM

My footsteps echo
Through the City that once was
Home to Age Writers

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 14 2004, 01:37 PM

My favorite Age
Kemo storms moving in fast
Cleansing the Spirit

Posted by: Ayli Dec 14 2004, 01:54 PM

Through the fissure fell
Softly landed on the Cleft
Bahro's screems I've heard

Posted by: Moranda Dec 15 2004, 05:20 PM

Taking Totems back
to their rightful place of rest,
frees the Bahro souls.

Oh, very nice Mo!!! These are great!!

Rex starts scratching his head, ok, time for another!!

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 15 2004, 07:57 PM

(Head scratching has stopped...)

City Lights tour brings
Many ooh's and ahs from all
Let's go again. Cat's!

Posted by: Nyrphame Danilaise Dec 15 2004, 08:34 PM

Who has seen Yeesha,
Bringer and taker of books
And red butterflys?

Posted by: RR_Caz Dec 15 2004, 10:21 PM

Kadish pillars rise.
Crash of stone thunder. Climb up!
Music, like wind wafts...

Posted by: kurtg1265 Dec 15 2004, 11:00 PM

I need a greeter
Oh where can I find one now
Near the tent, of course

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 17 2004, 04:32 PM

The tent beckons me
This stupid rope, greased again
Attempt number 10…

Posted by: Moranda Dec 17 2004, 09:08 PM

once upon the tent
walk carefully to one side
or you will fall in

Posted by: kurtg1265 Dec 17 2004, 10:24 PM

In the Nexus again
Where do I want to go now
I'll go to the city

Posted by: RR_Caz Dec 17 2004, 11:43 PM

Column of Avies
Looks pretty festive from here
Cats is an artist!

Posted by: kurtg1265 Dec 18 2004, 12:00 AM

All alone on the city
A chilling quiet is in the air
I hear the Bahro scream

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 18 2004, 11:20 AM

Stairway to heaven?
Wait, they happen to be cones!
Caz, Cats and Ayli!!

Speaking of Markers
Rex is distraught. Can't find one.
Lost in the City.

Posted by: RR_Caz Dec 19 2004, 03:25 PM

I am entertained
this thread doth pique my interest
I laugh, I cry, woot!

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 19 2004, 10:37 PM

Crashing through the Age
With Shadowcats at my side
I stop and smile, wide

Cat's Siggy vanished.
Wherefore art thou, yes, indeed.
Lost in cyberspace!

Sadly, I must sleep
Missing the laughter of friends
Deep within D'ni...


Sorry! I'm on a roll!! But the above is true... down.gif

No prob Rex, ol' boy... I just Merge them... smile.gif RR

Use five syllables
Then seven, then five again
And you'll do fine, Cats

Posted by: Rex Havoc Dec 22 2004, 01:33 PM

Oh, poor Shadowcats
Seems Haiku confuses him
Stick with cone sculpture!

Step left, step right, forward, back!
Jump, cheer, bow to crowd!!

The city is silent
all the houses are empty
but Uru lives on

Oh woe is me, I am sad
I will just keep trying

3 stanza haiku poem retelling the story of Uru


as the ages fell
the D'ni fate was sealed
unmade by their fear

one clan survives
all alone in the vast tree
a spark in darkness

with time others came
drawn to the sacred city
stoking the flame with fresh eyes

Shorah Ayli!

I was poking around the site and found this thread, thought I'd add my own. It certainly has been awhile; downright shocking how time gets away from me. It seems like only a few months since we've all chatted.

I hope everyone is well, it seems like this place is still pretty hoppin' !

I was wondering if any of you guys are willing to contribute some your poetry to Cavern Haiku, and uru anthology?
Is anybody interested in contributing?
If so, point out the poems you want submitted, and I will add them!

Hi Reelah,

Could you give as a little info on what's that anthology is all about, where it is going to be published or used for?

My haiku was a fluke, I don't have a poetic sense :lol :I have one on this thread smile.gif

Posted by: Reelah May 28 2007, 12:56 PM

It is a compilation of fan written haiku, that will be available in PDF format. I would've liked to publish it, but as self publishing websites such as lulu.com, don't accept fanfic, i cant down.gif
But I only have a few haiku's so far, I am looking for more!

Reelah, the reason your pdf is in B/W is because you chose a black and white printer as your PostScript printer. You have to choose Adobe distiller in the printer selection or Generic Color printer. What program did you use to create your pages, I might be able to help you further.

Posted by: Rex Havoc Jun 17 2007, 10:41 PM

Ayli suggesting
Tips on printing are spot on
Master in the house!

Posted by: jarelav Jun 18 2007, 04:17 AM

Is it magical?
Document can be colored
Ayli has the touch

Posted by: jarelav Jun 18 2007, 12:40 PM

That is what I need
Generic color printer
Yet ink is costly

Posted by: Rex Havoc Jun 18 2007, 01:06 PM

Yes, it is costly
But, you can't take it with you
