Have a go at a Haiku!

Twice five plus seven

syllables is not much, but

that's haiku for you.

Small weed by the road,

Shaken by passing footsteps,

Spring will show your worth.

In the dead of night,

A head turns and an eye gleams,

The owl springs downwards.

I've only just discovered this thread, and am really enjoying all the great poets that we have. Here is my entry:

1. This was written on first seeing the top of  Mt Fuji clearly:

Fuji san, are you

So coy a cone, that oft you

Clothe yourself in clouds

2. Written after a kanji writing lesson in a temple in Kyoto

The monk chants a song

My brush is full of black ink

So many kanji!

I like the idea of Mount Fuji as being a person, and also being shy :D

Get off the dohyo

You must respect tradition

Even though you're twelve.

Kisenosato

Left pectoral muscle pain

When will it all end?

OK, you inspired me:

 

Higgledy Piggledy

Kisenosatomus

Winces and grimaces,

“Oh, woe is me!

 

If I go through Natsu like

A hippopotamus

August will be my Dan

Not Haiku. Basic 5-7-5 not observed. You do not make it to the second round.

Yes. Not Haiku. Excellent, but something else called something else. "These remind me of the "double-dactyl" rhymes", you wrote.  No second round.

Tires hiss in the rain,

Downturned faces walking home,

Together alone.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Elon Musk's boosters,

Landed like 50's Sci-Fi,

The future is here.

Tochinoshin's foe:

"Please don't let the audience

See my wiggling toes!"

"Two thousand twenty"
On Hakuho's yukatas:
He means to stay on

In contrast, Kise
Failed to reinvent himself
Facing his intai

And Ura, kyujo
Injuries healing apace
Aiming for comeback

While Tochinoshin
With a good two-zero start
Runs for Ozeki

Poor Takyasu,
There'll be another basho,
Stay at home! And heal!

How true this has turned out to be, sadly.
