Then there's the upcoming sequel Cellphone Haiku...
Sounds like fun. Maybe we could have a twiplet competition, too, for those
who prefer to use twitter.

Those are new to me but sound good.

I'll be doing a mixture of original Haiku that I write most of my cellphone
text messages in, and Dale Houstamn style re-writes of the poems in
Horatio's "Complete" thread, which isn't /complete/ in
alt.arts.poetry.comments without contributions from the regulars here, which
is you, Corey, the Colonel... Generic... maybe even Horatio and PJR will
want to get back in the game, the real game.

Here's some examples of Cellphone Haiku, just because I have them handy, and
they're mine, for example purposes:

Three Haiku / Will Dockery

------------------------------

Moonlit Mile

So many tears on a moonlit mile
through Aokigahara forest
old man tips his snow cap.

-Will Dockery

Sandy makes me think of a haiku, though unfinished.

Bluebird
on white snow
shivers her timbers.

-Will Dockery

and

Iron Butterfly
comes to mind
1970s breeze.

-Will Dockery

Cellphone Haiku

In Tennesee honey
pale blue eyes swim
in spiced tears.

Cellphone Haiku 4

Pink handkerchief sunset
jiggling boob clouds
purple mountains rising.
