I love writing Haikus. My best friend taught me how to write them. He said ' It's not that hard. All you have to do is learn.' So I did and I fell in love with them. Here's my first Haiku:

Clear like Crystals
It is clear, you know
that what some don't know, we do
albeit, they will.

The sun so bright shines.
Shines down the stagnant waters.
Blue becomes silver.

This is the first part of the tanka I posted in the tanka contest.

All has become bleak
Colors have died in my world
Layed way for sorrow.

Oh my goodness, Endscape. That's so sad.

Water has come by
trying to cleanse the sadness
they will soon prevail.

Two hours
For two whole long hours
I sit waiting for the end
the gray curtain falls

But then, I awake
the sun has risen, I live
My joy overflows

I thought this one up for today. It's rainy and gloomy.

Special friend
Our love is special
they can never tear us up
we hold together

I did this one for a close friend of mine.

Unnamed (Give it your own naming)

slow rain, dripping off,
green leaves bend slowly down,
rain showers coldly.

Ghost
Sculking through the streets,
Drifting through time day by day
Just living to die.

Your haikus are depressing, Endscape. But that's okay.

My life is happy
I smile just because I can
Life's never better.

Depressing? dark is one thing but depressing?
i personally cant go on forever portraying the brighter side of life, thats fine and dandy however, obviously, there's a darker side, that has to be seen aswell, pretty or not, pleasant or not, its all about balance.....


ADHERE to these 2;
Yin and Yang walk hand and hand,
Guide us through this life

I meant, Endscape, your haikus are dark. Is that better?

Take me to the rain
show me where the sun lies down
lay me somewhere safe

take me to the moon
show me where the stars all burn
put me somewhere safe

take me back to earth
show me where the moon comes up
I'll be somewhere safe

The Beauty is the Beast?

Medusa, beauty
or beast? eyes that pierce all men,
vixian or horror?

i dont know if i conveyed the message well enough... did her turn men to stone because of incredible beauty or was she really, a monster...

Continued wishing

I want to keep on
wishing for what I don't have
it would be better

I want to keep on
hoping the world will soon end
so I can start over.

P.S. Thank you for your haikus Endscape.

Ahh, I'll give it a shot.

The World

We have no rights here,
Who are we to destroy it,
Our eternal home.

Not my best piece, but, it alright. You're really good, murasaki! And Endscape, your haikus are really descriptive and dark. I like 'em All of 'em.

^appreciated -_-
Mura, being ur freind ahead of time im warning, u may not want to read this..... in a good mood..

Endscape(World End)
Let no tear be shed,
Let not one voice sing again,
Tis now it all ENDS...

The eve of our doom
Stands promptly before us all
Bearing her dark fangs...

Let no smile be seen,
Let no spirit reach heaven,
But feel no regret

Now look back on life,
As all humans do when time,
Reflect yesterday

Do not be ashamed
Cherish every last mistake;
Proof of human life

Hold your loved ones close
Face the end with pride in heart
Feel no fear, move on....

As a pirate to
the gallows, laugh in death's face,
Embrace your last stand..


unfinished piece...... maybe my worst yet... in terms of the mood.... its old but, try and get my message...
simple, but a bit more the skin deep.
