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. Blue Footed Booby says:

    This is amazing. I think I love you.

  3. 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!

  4. Best haiku evar!

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

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

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

    I heard someone say one time

    And tall like a tree
