jedi haiku was created by RyuJin
thought i'd try something out and open a spot for members to try thier hand at haiku(japanese style poetry). haiku follows a very simply pattern of 3 lines with a combined total of 17 syllables usually arranged with 5 syllables in the first line 7 in the second and 5 in the third. to get things started here goes:

at one with the force
a jedi uses wisdom
to do what is right

Out of darkness, he brings light. Out of hatred, love. Out of dishonor, honor-james allen-
He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure-james allen-
The sword is the key to heaven and hell-Mahomet-
The best won victory is that obtained without shedding blood-Count Katsu-
All men's souls are immortal, only the souls of the righteous are immortal and divine -Socrates-
I'm the best at what I do, what I do ain't pretty-wolverine

like the bird of flames
we are reborn with new life
after our trials

I've always loved writing Haikus. The simplicity and beauty of them have always drawn me in.

Training my body,
Both mental and physical,
I am a Jedi.

Not nearly as good as yours, but I thought I would give it a shot. :)

believe it or not i wasn't always good at haiku myself...always liked them but had no talent for it...it was only in the last few years that i developed a knack for it...

it's pleasant expressing one's self artisticly isn't it though...

in the old times one would call someone like me a rennaisance man...i dabble in martial arts, music, painting/drawing, writing, building/designing....basically a little of everything...much like a historical figure i admire, leonardo di vinci, among others...

artistic expression...that's what this thread is for ;)

feel free to submit more

to master the force
one must take the path that ends
with self mastery

I must control Rage,
For I follow Jediism;
Not the Dark Side's path.

Through meditation
I clear my mind of all things,
As peace flows through me.
