enough of all this
haiku? this is not real art
just some words messed up

Re: Got a haiku on your Swiss experience? Post it here!
 
but no, you are wrong
it is an art to say things
in very few words

shoot me now.. must stop
too much silliness coming
from my laptop keys

I have a good friend
we sms in haiku
This thread is easy

But sometimes we cheat
often ending the haiku

No more naysaying
all we get from Salsa love
unadvantageous

Number seven tram
rumbling along my street
It's quite hard to sleep.

Is it really Spring?
It seems to rain all the time.
Blossom on the trees.

On the Bahnhofstrasse
people just crash into me
Obliviously.

What's with the shopping?
I look all around, but no...
There's no Vegemite :-(

Eight francs for a pint?
It must be a joke, maybe.
What do others think?

It's ancient wisdom
Bubble's wallet suffers the
Expat bar premium

Day is done, gone buns.
Haikus melting like spring snow.
Salsa loves away...

Yes you're right, Nathu
Swiss beer is better, of course :-)
I should drink it more

...

Some things are quite cool!
Walk over the Bellevue bridge
Mountains far away

Or the Niederdorf
Buskers in the Lindenhof
What's that guy smoking?

Not sure re the cows...
Their sleepy clanging echoes
in the summer alps

They define the cheese:
ubiquitous Emmental
is very tasty

I do like it here.
It's hard to get complacent
It keeps me on my toes

As for Swiss landscapes -
The place is so beautiful
Mountains, snow, and green

And it's orderly...
The trains do run on time, mostly
to quote a cliche :-)

But in any case
I won't give up my day job
Haikus are too hard.

I'm here on a whim,
My whole family is Swiss
Big Mac costs 12 francs

New day springs surprise
Church bells clang like ambulance
What is it with priests?

Incidentally
haiku is too expensive
time equals money.

Ascension Thursday
Heralded my arrival
Eight long years ago

(The Eighth of the Eighth
Of the Eighth is my birthday
I shall celebrate)

(They say that numbers
Are the language of nature
I prefer bird song)

It took me six months
Before the culture shock hit
'Twas just a flesh wound

I found a cool job
Paid to advertise Mars bars
The nights were superb

The Twin Towers Fell
The Industry followed suit
Hard times, recession

Went to language school
Fell in lust with my teacher
Like everybody

Relationship dead
Moved out on mid-Summers eve
Who was I kidding?

Found solace in friends
Took a trip to Majorca
Slept with a woman

My liberty found
Quietly celebrated
She was from Holland

Zurich weather sucks
Endless fog during winter
I want to wear shorts





(I could go on but for the love of God it's all a bit too EMO)

Has no one explained?
Haiku has five, then seven
then five syllables.

Thirty bucks for lunch
I expected good service
I will not leave tip

First of May demo.
Collecting rubber bullets
tear-gas falls like rain.

Cow fighting this week

Udders a-plenty!

Cantonal finals
oversponsored — not enough
exclusivity?

Two cows on pasture:
"Mad cow news doesn't scare you?"
"Why? *I'm* an ermine!"

Why the vache-qui-rit?
Most cows ruminate on grass
some may have smoked it

Train, NEAT, sunshine:
"Wiär nämä jedä Loch"
claims a wall in Brig.

(Neue Eisenbahn
Alpentransversale Tun-
nel didn't fit. Darn.)

It's hard here sometimes
it's even complicated
I just don't let it
