Sokka's Haiku Battle (http://youtu.be/K7-2_gUuWK4) I loved The Avatar cartoon.

My submission:

Greedily chewing his bone
Not to be disturbed

I think your haiku was rather good. This one is more of a senryū (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Senry%C5%AB), in my opinion.

First a random five
Scrape the barrel for seven
Then dig up five more.

Jeez, but it's boring.  Nearly as mind-numbing as tennis.

Interesting. I'd never heard of a senryu before.

I don't know about that OG. Having played tennis for many years I can't think of anything more stultifying!

I have no future
And whilst I love the present
It is passing now

maybe this is better:

I have no future
And whilst I love the present
It just passes by

A British schoolgirl, Grace Starkey, from Stroud, a market town I know well not far from where I live, is the first non-Japanese to win in the English section of a major haiku competition in Japan.

Quote
Gracie, who is 14, beat 18,247 other entries to win the English category in the 28th Ito En Oi Ocha New Haiku Contest, which attracts almost two million entries.

It seems there have been other haikus written in English, but all by Japanese poets.

Her entry was:

Freshly mown grass
clinging to my shoes
my muddled thoughts


Her haiku does not follow the traditional pattern, but it seems that content can win over form, a poet commented that it would resonate with the Japanese mind. It obviously did!

I will admit that I have trouble with this form of poetry but that does not prevent me appreciating her acheivement.

Silver; Did you make that clever take on the periodic table just for those of us who appreciate the humor?  Perhaps not, but I believe that you could. Hermes could help if needed.

No Icarus, but I wish I did! Hermes would certainly be better at it than I. :P
