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.

Everything is wrong.
Nothing has ever been right.
How can we fix this?

Fallout: New Vegas,
I shot a fire gecko
and picked up the hide.

Based on a true story. I copied your Fallout: New Vegas theme.

Fire is usually pronounced like fi-uhr or something, making fire a two syllable word, and the line a seven syllable line.

As you can see, it's very mixed whether people pronounce it as a one or two syllable word, so if the writer pronounces it as a two syllable word, I say let him.

1=I 2=shot 3=a 4=fi 5=re 6=ge 7=cko
Some pronounce fire as "faar", 1 syllable.
I use 2, "fy-ur", because that's how I pronounce it.

I know this is offtopic but, why did murasaki close her comments?

here's a haiku

As I take my pen
from the ink bottle it drips
marks my parchment black.

Can't give an answer,
Maybe it was spammed too much,
I don't really know.

not very unique,
not original at all,
but there you have it...


But my haiku is completely original/unique.

/sarcasm

I wasn't going for originality on that one. I just wanted to make a haiku.

Is not very nice at all
Please avoid its use.

Sarcasm ain't bad
Unless you are the victim.
Then it's just funny

Pain is like a coin,
Both have two different sides.
I have said enough.

pain- feeling of discomfort, agony, alert that the body is being harmed, can this be the up side to which you reffered.


What I meant was that one side of the "pain coin" is that those watching it find it hilarious ("Did he just smash his nuts on the railing?! Hahahahah!") and the other is the felling of pain ("Aaaaaaaaoooooou!").
