Friday Haiku: Size Matters Not

See Jabba The Frog
With This One The Force Is Strong
When In His Small Pond

From Jedi Jennifer F.: “This is Jabba. After rescuing him from a fisherman’s hook, Jabba retired in my pond. When he wasn’t hunting finches that flew overhead, he enjoyed the delicacy of a big ‘ol earthworm.”



  1. Hay lapa no ya,
    Solo! Boonowa tweepi,
    ha! Have you now, Han!

  2. Er, you have an extra syllable in the first line there …

  3. doomchild says:

    My goodness, I had no idea frogs can be so… relaxing. Almost as if he was in a spa.
    I feel calm.
    I… I feel…
    All hail the hypnotoad!

  4. Blue Footed Booby says:

    This is amazing. I think I love you.

  5. Best haiku evar!

  6. He looks kind of like the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

  7. I was just thinking the same thing!

  8. Its good to be green
    I heard someone say one time
    Or was it a dream

  9. Awww, garsh! [toe scuff].
    Poetry *is* the language of love, so CO haiku must be the language of geek love 😉
    But [putting down quill to lift back of puffy-shirted wrist to pale forehead] if only this ‘twould inspire others to write their own haiku! The more the merrier, CO gang: c’mon in, the metre’s fine!

  10. I was going to say. Let’s remove “Green.”

    It’s too darn common for people to forget haiku rhythm.

  11. Awww, bless the heart of
    the good person that rescued
    pretty green froggie.

  12. Green Jabba: The Frog
    Is With This One Force Is Strong
    When In His Small Pond

  13. Green can be big like
    A mountain or important
    And tall like a tree

  14. nicely done! i wanted to say it too, but you made it sound pretty.
