When there's no TRF for a couple of days, the mind begins to occupy itself with odd thoughts... I wrote a couple of haikus that captured my feelings at the time.

Rocketry Forum
Is where we talk, learn, and share
Our experiences.

Everybody
Misses you when you are down.
Full of emptiness.

Lalli's first haiku
Has too many syllables
In the final line.

Lalli's next haiku
Has one too few syllables
In its starting line.

Five syllables first,
Seven syllables follow,
Five syllables last.


:p

I just studied haiku in eng a while ago... and yes your lines are a little off but still funny. the other day when student central (like a forum board for the students in my cyber school) was down this one kid wrote a poem that was really funy, and so now when trf was down i actually (and i hate poetry!) thought up a poem about missing trf! i just did it mentaly tho, didn't write it down..... the things we addicts do:)

There once was a man from Nantucket...oops...wrong poem!

My Bad!

Try that again...

There once was a kid from Nantucket
With rocsim he build him a rocket
An E engine he tried
But stability denied
A cluster he said...ah "the heck with it!

I had to clean that up! No haiku but lyrics are easier.

sandman:D

Ev-er-y-bod-y (guess it depends on what part of the world you're in...)
Miss-es you when you are down.
Full of emp-ti-ness

Big props to Fore Check

And stuck to format :)

The rocket lifts off
Then heads back for Mother Earth
A homesick gopher

The rocket lifts off
A parachute forgotten
Back in the range box

The rocket lifts off
Like the soul of the flier
It rests in the trees

The rocke..ah, that's enough for right now...
