Topic: G.P.O. Haikus?

    G.P.O. Haikus?

    My wife is teaching her class about Haikus. So at dinner tonight I got the idea of seeing how many Haikus this forum might come up with about GPO.

    Haiku is an ancient form of Japanese poetry. It has only three lines that don't rhyme. The first line has five syllables, the second has seven and the third has five again. So there be seventeen syllables in all (Styxx is getting to me). It is said that one should avoid similes and metaphors and retain Japanese values of lightness, simplicity, openness, and depth.

    Anyone care to join me in seeing how creative we can be? To start the ball rolling, I'll submit this one.

    Restless soul, so lost
    In maze of lifeless samples.
    Then came G. P. O.

    Controllers amaze
    me. Wish my brain was as well
    programmed. Lots to learn.

    confused at times, am I sure?

    (again, sorry, it's late, I'm tired)

    I'm worn, I'm woosy,
    GPO tired me but good
    On to sleep and dreams

    My dream has been to
    compose music like gods and
    post as much as Styxx

    Fingers follow mind
    GPO follows fingers
    Mind follows music

    Fantastic inventive idea Karl. I love Haiku but haven't thought about them for years since I first came across them during my children's schooling! (and had a go myself! )

    I hope you don't mind if I join in....

    Marvellous moments
    Creative, despair and joy
    GPO delights

    Thanks for this

    We shall never know
    the forgotten melodies
    written long ago

    Though we write today
    Remember that no music
    doth last forever



    Writing these Haikus
    is so very addicting
    I hope mine are good

    Do you believe that
    we could communicate while
    writing just like this?
