That was painful to me

Aren't Haiku's supposed to follow a 5-7-5 syllable format? I prefer limericks.

There once was a poster Pehawk
Had a very tiny Co....

Well, you get the idea.

JSeahawks is right for once. the OP was not a haiku. Neither was Sarlaac's.

Dammit, I typed painful instead of pain.

The whole 5-7-5 syllable is a American/Westernized simplification of haiku. The 17 morae used in haiku are more based on stress and timing, which is similar but not the same as syllabic units. More important than the number of morae used, is really the image and juxapositioning of each line, and the fact that most haikus are traditionally framed by a specific season of the year.

So while just about anyone (except apparently the people in this thread) can count off 5-7-5 syllables on their fingers and break them into three lines, it doesn't necessarily make it a haiku.

I'm glad someone else explained this because I knew about the season stuff, but damned if I could explain it simply. Also, I can't count on my fingers.

In Chem140 in Pierce College (Tacoma), one of the questions on the mid-term was to compose a chemistry haiku. My response (which also hit the seasonal thing):

Covalent bonding
Lovers on a sweet spring night
Exchanging charges

Seahawks related:

DangeRuss Wilson
Too short to throw a football
Autumn disagrees

OK, these suck but maybe not as bad...

Russell Wilson Shines
Seahawks Defense tough as nails
The league is fearful

Autumn wind a Seahawk
Preys on teams like fierce raptor
Tears teams asunder!

Actually, it's supposed to have 17 on. On's are not syllables. For example, Nippon has 4 ons, but is only two syllables. Aeons was a bit murkier. Was that 4 ons or 3? so I basically said F it and wrote the Haiku how I damn well wanted.

Ons and morae are the same thing, so I am not sure what you are getting at. For what it is worth, I am not Japanese nor am I a poetry scholar, but I do have some experience with it. My wife wrote poetry for years and years, so I have picked up a handful of things over that time. Jane Reichold once did a study on haiku, and determined there to be 65 "rules" for writing a haiku. The funny part is, many of the rules directly contradict each other. So in the end, the sentiment of just saying screw it, and writing it how you want, is not necessarily a bad route to take.

Looks like you got your basic aeon flux here...
