yesterday, on another thread i wrote a vampire haiku. pretty bad. nonetheless, the first one i had written since highschool.

steve earle, musician as you know, spent one year writing a haiku everyday.

so i propose on this thread to write a haiku.

very simple rule to writing one. it can be about anything, does not have to rhyme, and must have 17 syllables.

i'll start off

my dad has had baked beans and cooked cabbage, stay away from the toilet.

The wind shakes the tree

The fish swims up the river

A wise man is still

Pseudo Taoist tripe

It is most traditional

to write as haiku
