midgets: very short,
like haikus. the difference?
i quite like midgets.

it is five o'clock -
name me something that is short,
other than midgets.

and it needs to be
two syllables, exactly
just not "midgets", please.

i like midgets, but
they don't represent me well,
since i am 5'4".

ponies are shortish,
but i quit horseback riding.
guess i need to shrink.

me as a midget?
hard life, but good for essays
and great for haikus.

Hey there, Emily
I am the Haiku Master
Here to help you out.

Let's start with the prompt.
Is there one? If so, post it.
That will help us some.

Now, for your haikus.
They are quite good... funny stuff!
Except Haiku Five.

Ponies don't fit here.
They don't match your theme, sorry.
Seemingly random.

Your strength is continuity.
This haiku has far too many syllables.
Nonetheless, you should keep to your strengths... connect!

hahah the prompt is to write a haiku that represents you. i'd only be using the first one, but the rest of the post was just about how "midget" doesn't represent me, so i want something that does represent me and is short like a haiku.

Carrots and Barbies
Lego people and pumpkins
Fleeting moments, too!

Our time on this earth
My time with you here today,
6:00 tonight.

Fuses and tempers,
Shortcake, short shorts, SMS,
Everything is short!

my temper is short,
but nyu does not want
such a sharp, curt girl.

and i wear short skirts,
but that sends the wrong message.
my legs remain closed!

it must be perfect:
the best representation
of me possible.

As we've never met
This presents quite the challenge.
I don't know you, girl!

I'd suggest coffee,
But I doubt you live in Germany
So that won't work out.

Do you want something
Metaphorically, or
physically short?

i know, it's quite tough,
since you have never met me.
i apologize.

i have never had
a single sip of coffee.
either one is fine.

Actually, I
am more of a Cacao guy
Coffee is not good.

Short notice and chortles,
Short stories and short poems
Thumbtacks, applejacks!

Short and sweet, sweet and low,
low is short, sweet is cacao!
I'm through with haiku

In short, I really can't help much more, sorry... you've short circuited my short attention span, and I'm leaving shortly. Best of luck, I'll be back on 1/2/10 if you need more help. Have fun!

The most brilliant thread on this forum.
-Not a Haiku Master

Comic strips? Hair cuts? Dachshunds? Lawn gnomes?

you guys are crazy
with your haiku responses!
I really need one

It's hard to try to
write everything about me
in such a short space
