Haiku Hump Day - Lord of the Rings
Someone had to do it eventually right? Oh sure I wanted to do The Watchman or Bladerunner but I wasn't sure how many people could sink their poetic teeth into the lore of those two so I chose something more accessible. This was my trilogy as a youngster as these books gripped me way beyond the other trilogy so haiku we must!
The problem is it feels over exposed right now and I need another 3 years space to really have it take back the place in my heart that it did as a 9 year old who read the series and was filled with wonder. Damn you Peter Jackson!
I still feel it's a worthy haiku hump day subject and should be a fun romp with unending possibilities for haiku mayhem.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your haiku engines....
