I didn't stop reading! Just got a little caught up in work (me working? amazing!) and hadn't gotten back here yet.

Thanks, AJ! You're great. [Smile]

Condominiums
For Sale, Build to your desires
Call Mordor Remax

Gondor survived war
Sauron could not destroy her
Vacationers will.

Fanghorn Is Restless
Orcan Condos need timber

White tree is dying:
Another thing to wipe off the
"Endangered" list.

'species act' doesn't fit! I guess that's where you had problems.

ON Sam and Frodo, Merry and Pippen

Pretty young hobbits
But they were all middle aged
In Tolkien's great book

Funnily enough
that's because they axed some years
right after Bilbo left.

(but you probably know that [Smile] )

counting syllables
shows a lack of faith and trust
but I do it too.

EDIT:

I have just noticed
my dental haiku up top.
what was I thinking?

This may sound kind of silly, but I thought it was worth asking.

Would anyone mind if I borrowed a couple of these? My student newsletter is in dire need of filler (mid-term season).

Thanks. [Smile]

I should write my draft
Instead I am posting here
And wasting my time

Haiku was never my strong point.

But I posted this because
Haiku's addictive.

Ignoring the call to arms;
They must be Hobbits

You know I feel glad
Whenever I see this thread
On Hatrack's first page.

...

My heart is weeping
Eowyn and Faramir
Fall deeply in love.

(EDIT:

Oops I repeated
The Haiku above my own
I apologise.)

Are the same people wo is me.

Many posters though
Prefer a stricter form of haiku
Namely with seasons. [Wink]

Uruk Haiku:

Sometimes I wonder:
Why do we never order
Vegetarian?

Bump.

Legendary Uruk children:

We don't want to go
To school today but the lash
is too persuasive.

Uruk children like
The Legendary Ent-Wives
Have gone MIA.

This thread so deserves
Yet another appearance
On the front pages. [Smile]

I love how this thread
is full of movie longing
and its share of angst.

It strikes me funny
that many of our poems
are about the films.

I also think it's
hilarious that I am
posting in haiku.

My troll friends, so odd
We argue all night. All night?
The sun! No! I'm cold.

Hungover from wine
Not Drinking it. Being it.
The barrel ride sucks.

Bag end is all mine
The wealth, the food, at last, mine.
Who comes down the road?
