GNU haiku

This one is funny.

NKV and me have been talking about haiku and I decided to write some haiku on gnu (pretty challenging, eh?). Well, there are better "subjects", but I suspect they will mind it if I try to use them.

So here it is...

Last I spoke to him
he was reading Python
he is cute, isn't he?

NKV said it is 5/6/5, but I don't care anyways. :-) Although he admitted that his roomie doesn't really inspire him to write poetry, he tried a quick one.

Free software hacker
uncut beard and shaggy mane
still so lovable

It is obvious that my version is lot more nice and easier to understand... clap clap!!!

Clap Clap indeed. Don't stop at a haiku. Compose an ode now. :)

It's 5/7/5, with a season word and a sudden change on the last line...

Dancing lines of code
Floating sadness, but outside
Hot sun and no shade

Hmm... Just a set of small rules and it makes difficult, the art of poem writing. I remember my sister asking me how a poet was able to write a thousand line or so poem based on a set of rules called the "Keka".
That was the time I used to admire Malayalam poetry.

Anyways keep such things coming. :)

I think the beauty of Haiku is in it's brevity and restriction.
It's concentrated. Many of them can be expanded into pages of conventional verse.

That's what I was talking about here.

Sorry about this.

./configure
make install and hope it works
snow crash? Use The Source.

5/7/5, season word and all. Or you could just use apt-get, I guess:/
And *damn*, the book's a blockbuster:)

Yeah, haikus are poignant concentrates. Need to slow down a lot to enjoy these. Wish I knew Japanese though.
