Sorry, but no more rhymes and haikus from me today. I think I'll forgo the sonnet form from now on. I will need more time to create 10 syllable lines that rhyme.

BTW you're a poetic genius and the idea of tea time is marvelous and pumps my creative juices.

Til the next tea time, I bid you adieu.

:o) *glow*

P.S. Tis sad, I have an English degree and I can't compose a decent sonnet. :o(

with syllable accents capitalized


The CHILD who ATE his SPInach IS all GREEN.


NOTE: Iambic accent should fall on natural accent of word.

REMEMBER: ka-BOOM ka-BOOM ka-BOOM ka-BOOM ka-BOOM

     When BUFfy KISses SPIKE she BLUSHes RED.


END OF LESSON. <smile>

Really, and truly POOF



he did

say man - I was right!

I've visited Shakespeare's birthplace but I don't know what a sonnet is and not v. keen on it as they shoved it down our throats at school!!



(glow) Tea Time hath endeth . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 8:19 PM 5 of 36

. . . but I shall tarry to praise

your sally with verse.


(2) Yet as for sonnets . . .

iambic pentameter

is 10 syllables.


(3) Five iambic feet

goes: "kah-BOOM kah-BOOM kah-BOOM

kah -BOOM kah-BOOM." POOF



FP don't leave just...
Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 8:12 PM 6 of 36

...yet because I want to show...
...you a new sonnet.

Is this an acceptable Shakespearean Sonnet?

I knew it was true
Syllables needed
be 5 long to do
It will be heeded

Except iambic
Tis more hard to write
I hope you don't pick
On me for this blight

The intonation
and stress in a verse
of iambic run
make me want to curse.

Her endeth my whine,
Is this sonnet fine?



ha, ha
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 8:11 PM 7 of 36

All peotic niceness thrown to the wind...
Just wanted to let u know before u go that I'm paying for the privilege at the SFX convention in England in June ha,ha.........



a noble encounter
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 8:09 PM 8 of 36

it sounded indeed,
The big bad taking such heed,
A meeting of souls and gentlemenly retreat..



THE END. . . of Tea Time has come. With only minimal syllable slippage <g>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 8:09 PM 9 of 36

END NOTE: Haiku's are easiest for real time posting . . .

5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

But the mysterious secret experiment continues.

THE TOPIC FOR TOMORROW . . . ah, well, that's a secret, too. <g>

Still working out the art and science . . .of (CENSORED FOR SECURITY PURPOSES).

POOF.



I feel like sighing
Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 8:08 PM 10 of 36

Oh how I wished it was me

You lucky duck you



James, with humble grace . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 8:04 PM 11 of 36

. . . smiled without hesitation.

JAMES: "Thank you, man."


(2) His lady smiled, too.

     And no, I did not tarry.

It would have been rude.


HAIKU



OK back to Rupert Bear
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 8:04 PM 12 of 36

Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 8:02 PM 13 of 36

I see no verses

You have faltered too

:o)



The two words I said . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 8:00 PM 14 of 36

ME: "Beautiful work."



HAIKU

JM: hey thanks man



Scratches head
Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 7:58 PM 16 of 36

FP: 2 words four syllables
JM: 3 words

I feel like we are
playing charades without some
handy visuals
:o)



I think
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:56 PM 17 of 36

you've broken the rules glow (he's a control freak...<g>)


Oops
Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 7:55 PM 18 of 36

That wasn't a proper haiku. :o(

Please tell me that you
Said something much more unique
Than what I spewed



Haiku
Posted by: glow - Mar 26, 2002, 7:53 PM 19 of 36

FP: Hi, how are you?
JM: I'm fine thanks.

Please tell me that you
Said something more unique
Than what I spewed



To make "the moment" . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:53 PM 20 of 36

. . . I wished to praise concisely

the man I spoke to.


(2) Put in a nutshell

    that which would make him most pleased.


Can you guess them now?



HAIKU



.....
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:49 PM 21 of 36

FP: Hiya Jamie
JM: Fine thanks man

(everyone says "man" in america don't they?)



James smiled and replied . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:43 PM 22 of 36

. . . with his three words to my two.

Guess what we both said.


HAIKU



(oops ... strike "little" from last line) <g>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:40 PM 23 of 36

...


I thought a moment . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:39 PM 24 of 36

. . . and selected just two words.

Four kind little syllables.


HAIKU



....
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:35 PM 25 of 36

oh well if he was with some other woman I wouldn't bother <sniff>

Go on tell me what you did!!!!!!!!!!



More calculation . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:33 PM 26 of 36

How many words would be "right"

to give James pleasure?


HAIKU



Let us calculate . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:29 PM 27 of 36

. . . the social propriety .

Intruding on fame.


(2) But there stands sweet Spike

  This may be your only chance.

     To sniff his bright hair. <ewg>

HAIKU



I can't imagine such a thing
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:24 PM 28 of 36

over here in fair England

I might spy Giles one day and say good day

But the big bad might reduce my communication capacity to single syllables..

But I think your gender means you don't have the hormone problem?

(Does that qualify as verse?)



he he...
Posted by: DaLilBit - Mar 26, 2002, 7:22 PM 29 of 36

Toddles, I'm Mayor McFluffy,
And I'm Big fan of Buffy.
Really pleased to meet you all,
And plz give the NB(New Beginnings) a call.

...hope I did ok/gotta poof for now/have a Xander-ific day!!!



He was not alone . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:22 PM 30 of 36

a pleasant lady in tow.

What would you have done?


HAIKU



TRUE: I spied Marsters . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:18 PM 31 of 36

while I was hunting ice cream.


Would you say hello?



NOTE: haiku



and....
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:17 PM 32 of 36

Did you dare intrude,
Or did u think it far too rude
(OK now I feel like Rupert Bear)



Spike squeezing mellons . . . <g>
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:14 PM 33 of 36

. . . at late night supermarket.


Should you interrupt?



TO BE CONTINUED



mistyping, sometimes . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:11 PM 34 of 36

leads to interesting thoughts.


(posting, not "posing" ) <smile>



okay
Posted by: holywater - Mar 26, 2002, 7:10 PM 35 of 36

you've forced me into it....I'll have a stiff cuppa after this..........

I read the notes on poetic verse,
And saw some vitue in having to rehearse,
Crafting lines of pondered thought,
Keeping each idea crisp and short,

So now I've played my part,
Warped my mind with evil art,
Tell me wot u know I'd like,
Did you retail foray end with Spike?



The secret mission . . .
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 26, 2002, 7:08 PM 36 of 36

of Tea Time posing hour

is a mystery.
