A Story Made out of Haiku

Monkey Pressbuttons

This story is made out of haiku (that's plural, but it doesn't have an s on it, because it's a Japanese word.) Each line must be a haiku! And together they will all tell a story that hopefully makes some kinda sense and/or is hylarious.

In case you're a little fuzzy on what a haiku is, and also to make this description extra long to test and make sure the long description bug is fixed, here's a description from Wikipedia:

Haiku is a short form of Japanese poetry in three phrases, typically characterized by three qualities:

1. The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

2. Traditional haiku often consist of 17 "on" (also known as morae though often loosely translated as "syllables"), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 "on" respectively.

3. A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such terms.

Or, the simple version for dummies:

1st line, 5 syllables

2nd line, 7 syllables

3rd line, 5 syllables




Once upon a time

I ate a purple mushroom

And met Rainbow Dash


She looked at me weird

For a human she had yet seen

As for me I laughed


Miss Dash, my dear friend

Though I may be a biped

I can do "bro hoof"


A "Bro Hoof" you say,

One I shall give, if I may?

or more formal are you?


My knuckles at risk

from her supersonic hooves

I hold up my hoof


Hooves meet with a crack

The joy of being a bro

Friendship is magic
