    In the spirit of the other poetic threads, I give you the Bizarre Haiku Challenge.
    SensualGardening, if he accepts this mission, and yours truly will grade your submissions on a 1 to 3 scale.
    1= rather strange
    2= freaky
    3= truly bizarre

    For those who are unfamiliar with Haiku structure, here is a brief guideline to the traditional form;
    Usually it has 3 lines and 17 syllabes distributed in 5, 7 and 5. It must register or indicate a moment, sensation, impression or drama of a specific fact of nature. It's almost like a photo of some specific moment of nature.

    But for our purposes, it doesn't have to be about nature. The subject can be anything that enters your head. And the best part is........it's not supposed to rhyme !

    So, I'll start us off with a simple one I managed to put together based on reading various topics in the Lounge today. Btw, I would rate this a 1.

    Forum soon will pass
    Why, oh why ? I am saddened.
    Please buy my mangoes




    Happy Haikuing !

    Excellent my friend
    Your garden blooms with treasures
    Sensually grown



    @ shinzuiski...the closer you can stick to the formula, the better. but, you can always string more than one Haiku together I suppose.
