Poetry is gay
Anyone can make some words
Prose requires skill
This is my piece of propaganda regarding writing styles.

You are -an excuse me for resorting to insults- an idiot, if you truly believe so...
Prose is no better than Poetry, just as poetry is no better than Prose...

Both are alike, but they tend to aim and create different feelings... Or is it that you have never encountered a good poem? Anyone can make some words, but dont forget that prose and poetry are pretty much just some words, and both require skill to be written effectively...

I daresay the artist was joking.
As they refer to the deviation as "propaganda" in the artist description.

I hope so.

That's freaking awesome. :D
I love it. The "Faiku" and the drawing. Just lovely!

Well, that's like... your opinion, man.

I don't see Hiaku's as poetry, they're too easy and simple. Plus most don't make sense.
SOLARTS Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
you mean "I cant make sense of them"
they are puzzles.

response is pending,
please continue with your day,
while artist seeks muse,

(hehe you like that, made it up on the spot)jk

haha but haikus are so fun, maybe you'll be more impressed with mine, enter shameless plug here->[link] anyway I do agree that writing prose is extreamly difficult
indieXchick13 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2007

I went searching for funny, non-conformist haikus to feature. This was among the best! Check out my journal, and my literary magazine: [link] - we need writers like you. x

Excellent parody :P

-.- Mabye I'm behind the curve with viewing this, yet I would argue that poetry is gay. I'm a poet, I also take things toooooooo personally. It takes alot of heart to write poetry. I admit that you can just throw together a poem on a whim, yet most takes time and delicacy. Look at my deviation "The night sky" Trust me, poetry is not gay. Well then... There's my daily rant. Sorry to piss everyone off.
SOLARTS Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
It really isnt about being "gay" or not. How is anything "gay." Isn't gay a mode of sexuality? Not an insult?

But we do agree with you - writing poetry is hard. Much harder we believe than most forms of writing. Not better, just harder to learn and appreciate.

For us, prose is most often written to be read in one go. Poems are written to be re-read and contemplated.
Imperialangel42 Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2007
You are a fool if you think that poetry does not require skill. While prose does take experience and skill to present properly, poetry makes words beautiful and rhythmic. Just because you cannot produce a good piece of poetry means that you have to ridicule it with a word like "gay". You may call that funny or artistic but I call it pathetic.
SOLARTS Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
Yay!!! Thankyou. I was wondering when someone was going to say that.

you rule Imerialangel!
Vyrillykos Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2006   Writer
I don't think you've seen or read enough poetry.
SOLARTS Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008
We agree!
Vyrillykos Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2008   Writer
Thank You
SOLARTS Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2008
Thank *you*.

This whole discussion is fucked.

The poem should be deleted for being homophobic (not that I think the author necessarily is, but the passive gay-bashing is just dumb).

I pretty much don't even understand Haikus....I'm all for someone expressing themselves in any form, be it words or portraits, but Haikus have never, ever taken my interest.

P.S. I would advise not looking at my gallery, unlike yours, it will probably just leave you dissapointed.
P.S.S. Incase you didn't gather from the above line, you have very nice artwork, alas, I don't have the time to do more then view it and move on. My apologies for the lack of good commentary on all your wonderful pieces.

I am very amused by your haiku ^.^ I don't like much of the poetry I run accross because most poetry I find feels like a bunch of words thrown together that don't really MEAN anything and were just put there to say "hey look at me, I wrote a poem! I'm artsy!". They feel like they only show the surface of something and have no actual soul. Once in a while (once in a VERY rare while since I don't tend to seek out poetry), though, I find something that resonates with me and those almost make suffering through all the crappy ones worthwhile. I like to think my poetry is better put together than some and I'd be very interested to know if you think the kind I write sucks too. Maybe that sounds weird, but I'm really curious, so if you're willing have a look and let me know.

I agree with tonycentioli. my poetry is nothing like the shit the rest of the people write on this site. and i would like to consider myself an artist.
TonyCentioli Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2004
i agree to a point. anyone can write half of that crappy shit that most people write on this site. but it is an art to put together beautiful words.
induhvidual Featured By Owner May 10, 2004
Why are you insulting me? I spent a good 5 minutes on that! It's not like I use "wounds" and "heal" in every one of my poems. Only 5.
ivan-ho Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2004
That's a very nice hand...
dolodragon Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2004
Hahaha, funny haiku and great anatomical rendering of a hand. Looks like it belongs in an anatomy book.

That's a nice hand sketch and the poem is so true. Why I haven't I devwatched you until now? ::bangs head against table::

Cool. It's whispy, yet sturdy at the same time. The color is cool, too. I shall now work on drawing hands...
foolire Featured By Owner May 8, 2003
just a ten minute sketch?... wow, something like that, to that high quality... would take me at least twenty minutes!! You must do a lot of sketching to get up to speed!
oh! and an amaising drawing! I really like it- I love all the veins and stuff!!
mcsketchalot Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2003
really nice hand there, who'd you study...Bridgeman or Hogarth...or maybe someone else altogether?
drd69 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2003
Your sketch skills are just too good.

So I've someone to brake both your hands in revenge! ;) (Wink)
(only joking, honest!)
a-liah Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2002
I think i like the sketch of the hand more then the poem >.
sporkninja Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2002

Five syllables here
And seven syllables here
