Haiku 2

Here are some haiku poems I recently wrote.

Christmas is coming
Again. Which can mean one thing:
It’s winter again.


I have had enough.
He is more changeable than
The British weather.


What goes round comes round
In time’s eternal cycle.
Can’t wait to come round.


Time is a cycle,
Camusian absurdity,
Existential jail.


How fast does time fly?
No faster, and no slower.
dt/dt = 1. tongue


Q: Who wrote the novels Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse?

Re: Haiku 2

Wunderbar! It inspired me to try my hands or rather my two fingers at some!

Seventeen annoys
it is verily a crime
this took a long time

She thinks he changes
But it is her eyes that do,
he, her opposite


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: Haiku 2

A few months ago I wrote a random Haiku generator in Python. Here are some that it wrote:

A hungry baby
wonderfully but poorly cries
over bright crayons

The cute, little spring
eagerly but sadly walks
through cool, bouncy stars

The happy puppy
poorly, not loudly, kisses
for fractal muffins

The dumb, hungry sky
angrily and sadly thinks
about green lettuce

They're nonsensical, but I think they are funny. I hope you like them.


There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, those who don't, and those who can use induction.
