Cascade Haiku

Recommended Posts

Don't you think each of the lines should be a somewhat complete thought? Running on into the next line is definitely cheating.

 

How about changing your first line to:

"Water falling down"

 

 

Then it would be way cool cool.gifbigdrink.gif.

The snow will soon fly

Making the mountains all white

Get ready to ski

Absolutely not. You're too anal. There's no cheating or rules (maybe guidelines) in poetry. Just shut up and write your own instead of worrying about mine. I certainly don't like all the poetry I read either!

 

Chuck,shove your rules up

your ass think about climbing

leave Haiku to others

Klenke,

I think yours would be cooler if the last line was changed to

 

"Shit! I are one two!"

Car, boat, bus and trail

Sounded so simple at home

Now a real headache. mad.gif

 

The town of Holden

Scenic wonder of the hills

Built on toxic dirt.

 

Pleasant suffering

Crawling through the slide alder

Entering the wild. cantfocus.gif

 

Citadel of rock

towering into the clouds

bigger than we thought. shocked.gif

 

High on a north face

Our minds travel somewhere else

Time to go back down. crazy.gif

 

Percaset pillows

Seperate mind from body

Laughter fills the woods. mushsmile.gif

 

Camping in the woods

Twenty hours which to pass

It seems like forever. rolleyes.gif

 

Lead, zinc and copper

Elements of deadly brine

Waiting in mine shafts. the_finger.gif

 

Happy Luthernans

Frolicking in the mountains

On a toxic mine. fruit.gif

make way thru steep hills

on rock and ice and snow,then-

topping out! Glorious.

 

 

I still want to see

in blossoms at dawn, the face

of the mountain god.

Why do we each climb?

Most for body mind and spirit.

A wonderful goal.

 

Why do we not climb?

When "the man" keeps us working.

Got to make ends meet.

 

Life is way too short.

The wisest course of action:

Go take a sick day.

Crisp temps are coming;

sending season has arrived!

So what's your next proj'?

 

 

Sportos in down coats

Lining up for Magic Light

Please take a number!

 

 

Great hordes of gumbies!

Who is next on Five-Gallon?!

What a clusterfuck!

 

 

Rockfall from Cocaine,

gonna get someone someday;

wouldn't stand down there!

 

 

Grasslands this weekend

full of unsubtle dopers

toking in full view

 

 

Zeb'/Zion ascents

seem to be in vogue this Fall.

From whence all the trads?

 

 

This route is scary;

I wish I had a stick clip.

I may wet my pants!

 

 

Hey you -- shit for brains!

Next time, brush off those crux grips!

You hosed my onsight!

 

 

Do you want beta?

'cause I've got that route wired,

and your sequence sucks.

 

 

Too many cars here!

Next time we'll show up early,

and park much closer!
