Cowboy Haiku

(1/5) > >>

Marthor:
Riding on the range
Get along little doggies
Crack the whip rawhide

Marthor:
Here lies Lester Moore
Four slugs from a forty-four
No Less and no more

WaddWatsonEllis:
Marthor,

I really, really like your Haiku,

And I am guessing you are not getting much of a reply because many of us:

1.) Are not overly familiar with Haiku

2. They might feel that they would have to reply in, which is worse than asking for a reply in Iambic Pentameter ...

No worries. The Samurai period in Japan is like our old west time period for us.
The Haiku is simple. Three lines, count the syllables in each line. Always 5-7-5

The Lester Moore Haiku is from a well known grave marker in Tombstone.

Jamie:
Cock the hammer back,
Aim for the center of mass,
Squeeze the trigger - bang!

Ahh my grasshopper,
Good to see this link renewed.
Keep the works coming.

Jamie
