It's been too long since I revived this thread. I've included all Haiku written so far. Hopefully I'll keep up with writing new ones so this thread doesn't archive like the last one.


Many may or may not know about Haiku. It's a Japanese poem format that generally doesn't rhyme & has a strict syllable count. Most haiku in English are done in 3 lines with a syllable count of 5-7-5. Here are a couple of examples & more will probably follow.

1. Redd
Purveyor of stuff
Mysterious supplier
To buy is crazy

2. Kiki
She is a black cat
With positive attitude
A neighbor's best friend

3. Tom Nook
A brown bushy tail
Fair price at general store
Permanent theif mask

4. Bliss
Tropical squirrel
Had name a change in Wild World
Now called Caroline

5. Hopper
A new movie star
Troubled by bad fishing luck
"Whose tire is this now?"

6. Bill
Football fanatic
Has a great sense of humor
"Put it on my bill"

7. Pete
Pelican mailman
Delivers at 5 and 7
Phyllis? Are you sure?

8. Marina
A pink octopus
Walking on six tentacles
That must really hurt

9. Pelly
Morning shift worker
What a delusional girl
Pete shows no interest

10. Alfonso
Wears Mario shirt
Italian crocodile
It's-a me! Om Nom

11. Ruby
Albino rabbit
Lunar surface room decor
Pink eyes aren't scary

12. Gulliver
A former sailor
Pilots Porpoise 5000
He's outta this world

13. Nat
HURGLE PLURGLE BLARG!
Give him your bugs for big points.
Beetle souffle? YUM!

14. Bones
White dog with brown spot
Will happily fetch your shoes
My newspaper's dry

15. Lobo
Purple and white wolf
First victim of the Fear Storm
There's the moon! Ah-roooooooo!

16. Ankha
Ancient Egypt cat
How did you survive this long?
With nine lives, silly.

17. Blanca
Wow! Perfect make-up!
I won't wash my face again!
Why must it rain now?

18. Chip
Tireless worker
Will judge any fish you bring
Mmmmm delicious...... BURRRRP!

19. Dora
Doesn't know Spanish
An explorer she is not
She is a white mouse

20. Kaitlyn
Sweeping thoroughly
She cannot find her Katie
Call Child Services!

21. Jack
Pumpkin headed guy
Visits on Halloween Night
Gimme some candy!

22. Jane
Purple gorilla
King Kong personality
Thankfully can't climb

23. Camofrog
Frog with a secret
Always prepared for combat
Can hide easily

24. Freya
Can be gruff at times
Named after a Norse goddess
She's pretty in pink

25. Clyde
Very stable friend
Will he help just anyone?
“No problem, clip clawp.”

Yep. With the exception of #25, all of them were written during 2009 on my first thread. I just didn't get time to keep it up & like so many threads on the boards, it got archived.

Oh, yeah, I remember this thread. In fact, I was just looking for it a few weeks ago. I never knew it got archived.

Nice job, Dalek. these are really good. I made one Haiku about Pelly, myself, but it's several stanzas. Kinda long.

The length of a stanza can vary, but is usually four lines long.

However, a Haiku stanza is three lines, as shown in all of Dalek's Haiku's.

"10. Alfonso

Is it me or is the first line 4 syllables? Not to be rude or anything

I also found a mistake in Kiki and Hopper. But other than them that's about it.

Fixed. THanks.

I do plan on writing more. I just need to get some time to write.

Since the rules state "No Co-Authoring", you can't post your own AC Haiku on this thread, cutiegirl45. You can start your own haiku thread.

But, what about this?
This is not co-authoring
Just wanted to say:

Your haiku's are WIN!
Very original, yes.
Very fun to read.

Just wanted to say:
This is not co-authoring
And keep on writing.

Just wanted to say (that to you, Dalek).

Are they sorta Animal Crossing character descriptions?

That's what a Haiku is.

Oh, and I think he's just doing Haiku's all about Animal Crossing, which includes the characters.
