Well here it is, the one and only THETOLKIENFORUM Haiku thread. From an original Haiku by daisy.

Haiku is described at
http://www.lsi.usp.br/usp/rod/poet/haiku.html

I don't claim to be an expert. Do your best. Basically it is 3 lines, with 5 syllables the first line, 7 the second and 5 the last line.

Here's mine to start (try not to laugh):

Treebeard is an Ent
He's the oldest living thing
Strides LONG in Fangorn

daisy you better do yours HAHA :)

edited: ps the website is iffy at best... sorry

In Quenya,this would mean:
Wind changes
My heart tells me:
The night is passing!

Hee, hee, hee, those are good.

But what if Tolkien had been into haiku....

Three Rings for Three Elves
Seven for the Seven Dwarves
Nine for the Dead Men

One Ring for Dark Lord
In shadowy Mordor Land
Don't mess with One Ring

Hmm, maybe it's just as well he wasn't.
