Those Dancin' Prancin' Indians

Post haiku?

Drum stamp silk leather
Sit in child's questions
Strange words all there
Feather passed the river

Chiana - whoa! I haven't written a haiku since high school. But I always liked their simplicity... sort of like Hemingway poetry.

Still, I'm more of a limerick guy! Preferably naughty.

That's not a haiku. A haiku is three lines. First line 5 syllables. Second line seven syllables. Third line 5 syllables.

A haiku has rules
Five, seven, five, line by line
Only three lines long

If he sees a good photo he'll grab it.
With him it's a regular habit.
Aurora's a treat
And Snow White is so sweet
But he'd rather have Jessica Rabbit.

Is that naughty enough?

I sometimes wonder it you could piece together the entire Indian Dance Circle routine with the piles of photos that have been taken and posted online.

@Aaron - true, a decent try at haiku would have to observe the rules of form, plus it's a bit too spare however arranged. 'Tis not a decent try though and I'm even worse at "poetry"!

@HBG2 - Since different tribes were represented at different times, each with their own dances, I doubt it. But one could surely put together a slideshow sure to flatten the heartiest buns.

interesting commentary, Major....not much renders you thus!

both Chiana and HBG2 had some good words to say....better than I could have come up with, that's for sure! I am just enjoying the scenery :-)

Major Pepperidge said...

Katella, I see you agree with me.

@Aron_Ardle, I remember the haiku rules, but I give Chiana points for breakin' the rules!

HBG2, I think you did an excellent job, and it is just naughty enough (but not too naughty) for this family-friendly blog! And yes, I think one probably could piece together an entire Indian Dance routine with my photos alone. I have tons that I don't even bother scanning.

Chiana, you did OK in my book!

Nancy, I always get the best comments!

@Aaron_Ardle said...

Maybe it's a fauxku
