Kind of HAIKU for EC, by Andiemay:

Ohhh,this perfect Singer, His haunting look,

Such a Deep Thinker, My heart comes undone...

By Tony Cartmill, dedicated to......Me:

Such brown-nose prose, there comes a cost.

My keyboard's ruined, from the lunch I tossed...

By James, James styled Haiku dedicated to Tony:

Roses are red,

This is the Cartmill deal.

No crying sheep allowed,

But anything flies if they're real. heartpump

"JohnO's are ok.. probably more technically sound than most. But my poem is more alive, it has meaning. I think it speaks to the deepest parts of the human soul.

I give it five-stars.."

But it isn't haiku, technical or otherwise.....syllables need to be 5,7,5


James - I'm wondering,

World's greatest womanizer,

Or wishful thinking?

That's a good one JohnO, I like it. Technically sound, relevant to the discussion, and most importantly it deals with my favorite subject (James) . Though no need to ponder further...axioms are axioms.

And you know, a rebel iconoclast like me should not be restricted by 5-7-5 type rules. There have been many great and important iconclasts of history that were told by their contemporaries that they should stick to the rules, but luckily they didn't. A few come to mind:




Jesus of Nazareth

Joan of Arc

James of EC.Com

Lastly thank you Darlene, but next time please include Tunes. And Andrewmae, your haiku was very very good!

Please carry-on..
