Fighting writer's block?
A good way to get unstuck
Is to write haikus.

I was looking through Haiku Wiki, and thought, wouldn't writing haikus be a good way to get creative juices flowing? They're short, sweet and simple, so you'll be able to say you've written something even if it's just a three-line, 17-syllable poem. If you're stuck on a project, it could get you in the mood to write more. After all, isn't the best way to beat writer's block just to write?

Haikus traditionally have themes about nature, but yours don't have to, if you don't want them to. Post as many as you like here!

Something I wrote a few years ago when I had to write a haiku for English class:

I don't like haikus.

The length limits are silly,

And nature bores me.

I tended to do this kind of thing a lot when given specific formats to write in.

Thunder, Perfect Mind
Most folks do not know
haiku you count mora
But not syllables.

English, Japanese
The rules are quite curious
To each the other.

So in essence I
Do not write
haiku so well;
Such is life, I guess.

turning and turning
Scattered over fields

the mounds are silent, sleeping

under the old sky.
Scepticism and doubt lead to study and investigation, and investigation is the beginning of wisdom.

We do this on another forum, so here are some that I've written:

Night drains the red sky

Colors fading in moonlight

The old day concedes


Winter opens buried

A frozen veil, life concludes

But spring soon follows


Lone moon hangs above

Darkened planet hangs below

One dance eternal


Roaming the noon sky

Hills of white and peaks of might

Sounds that growl within


Moon locked in Heaven

Twilight awakes at its call

Light of the dark night


Shattered Horizon

Stars painted on black canvas

Night strewn with bright suns

You need to Get Known to get one of those.
