Haiku? Yeah, I can get with that. Hardcore haiku? Even hotter. I (stilled_life, your friendly neighborhood moderator) started this thing out of boredom, based on some rambling post I had a while back in my personal journal. I'm sure I'll end up the only member, but it's all for my own amusement, so whatever.
Okay, here's the deal. Someone posts a subject, preferably something not usually considered appropriate for the noble art of haiku. Then you write a haiku based around said subject. Easy peasy, toast and cheesy.
Here's the basic biological breakdown of a haiku:
Of course, the noble art of haiku cannot be shackled by the strictures of the 5, 7, 5 structure and I've seen them in a variety of syllable combinations based on the 5, 7, 5 principle. Knock yourself out.
So this is how a post ideally goes: You post the subject, accompanied by your own haiku (or not, whatevs d00d), then everyone comments within the same post with their own haiku. What could be easier? Probably a lot. The end.
