    In English class I had to write a haiku, A Japanese lyric verse form having three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables.Here was mine...

    The borg are coming,
    Your resistence is futile,
    Assimilation.

    Does anyone else think they could write a haiku about star trek?:guffaw:

    Janeway kicks Delta
    Quadrant ass, so I wouldn't
    worry 'bout the Borg.

    Vorik has Pon Farr,
    but do not fear, Be'lanna,
    here comes Tom Paris!

    Icheb and Wesley
    would totally be best friends,
    because they are NERDS!

    Day of Honor sucked.

    Questionable taste.

    "Admit it, Kathy.
    It's been a while." "It will

    Damn, Kashyk is hot.
    Too bad he is a liar.
    Look! I can lie, too.

    In the Delta Quadrant, Le-

    Hi, my name is Joe.
    Jeez, it took you thirty years
    to come up with "Joe?"

    Trek limericks are fun too but this is a form that deserves a real go!

    Too many syllables in the middle line. Drop the "and." ;)

    I love Haiku, and I love Trek. This is fun for me, so I'm going another round.

    Slipstream, transwarp, Kes.
    So many leaps, yet Barclay
    knows just where we are.

    Assimilation:
    We can totally fix that.
    Fear the Borg no more.

    I am Seven of
    Nine, Tertiary -- Oh, hell.
    Just call me Seven.

    Hologram, or more?
    Subroutines, photons, force fields,
    Yet he dreams, sings, loves.

    Where the hell are we?
    Story of our lives aboard
    Starship Voyager.

    Technobabble rules!
    We can save the universe
    With the deflector.

    Are you allowed to split sentences across lines in haiku?

    I think so. I've never seen any mention of it in 'the rules.'

    Several Voyager fan writers have written Haiku. I don't, I have enough trouble writing Drabbles.

    This is a link to Dakota's Haikus, written in December 2002.

    Dakota passed away November 23rd, 2004 from advanced Breast Cancer. She is missed.

    Some excellent haikus there Brit, thanks so much for posting it. I am sorry to hear of her passing away. I have had a few friends lost to breast cancer and it is very hard, makes you treasure every day and not whine about aging that's for sure.

    What is a drabble?
