I'm told traditional Japanese haiku is not just about the right number of syllables and nature and stuff, it's more about double meanings and humor.

But at the very least, it's about 5-7-5. Who'll contribute?

Ahem. I will start.

Haiku are made with your breath
Not heard with your mind

Where are you?

In Book Twenty-Four
Of Chapman's Iliad, which
Is infested with
The round earth, heavns great Queen, [**dit DAH missing] and Pallas; to whose bands
or
As numrous; Phbus still, before, for all their haste [**dit DAH missing],
or, worse,
Right on the scope still of a race, bear near, know ever [**TOO MANY BEATS] when to rein,
totaling at least a dozen lines-- I'm flagging them as I go along-- which flatly refuse to scan as iambic heptameters. No way, nohow.

But the end is in sight, and I'm feeling immensely pleased with myself because (a) I've figured out how to code it so that if a narrow viewport forces a line break, the break will come at the caesura, which will look pretty, and (b) in the course of those 24 books I've arrived at a RegEx that will correctly flag the aforesaid caesura in most lines, no counting-on-fingers required.

It's a matter of recognizing syllables, which is obviously much horribler in English than in Japanese (assuming kana). Removing the text-specific bits like
(?<!Achill|acid|Ajac|Atrid|Hercul|Merion|Neleid|Pelid|Priamid|Tydid|Ulyss)

this recognizes most of the present thread if you fix the apostrophes.

You're short six syllables :)

Come to think of it, "not going the way I thought it would" is probably the opener for at least half the questions ever asked on any forum anywhere. But in my mind it comes through as
not going the way I thought it would

@Lapizuli....

What do you expect? We're webmasters, not poets. I suspect some of us might be Japanese but the rest are not, and a few have no imagination, having only a mercenary soul, or an altruism that will turn the stomach, or so dhimsical (sic, new word!) that even the world's best comedians can't get a clue.
