The Unicode Consortium hosted a Haiku Contest at the
IUC33 Unicode and Internationalization Conference.
The rules were that each entry must fit the pattern of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables.
Here are the Top 10 Winners of the Unicode Conference Haiku Contest.
Below are my entries. Of course, no winners among them.
Klingon is absent It is a good day to die If you are klingon My text knows no bounds What is a grapheme cluster? Give me a break please. How much is enough? More than one hundred thousand! Twenty six seemed fine. Turtles and turtles Many turtle characters Makes Unicode soup Combining accents. Above, below, on the side It's giving me strokes Damn Mojibake! Unicode saves my bacon Makes me a hero Mysterious box. Which character could it be? Choose another font. Nantucket Girl starts this Haiku, not Limerick. Thanks I18n. Man runs in to bar. Top bar, underbar, tone bar? Now it's broken bar.
I posted them to facebook and all the white space was removed, making the haikus unreadable. So...
Damn facebook interface. All my white space gone. kaput. Damn UI ruined haikus.
