Attempt at haiku...60% fail.


Violent iron
appeased as bleak man transforms
for hard honor's sake

So okay, here are some I hope relate to the challenge correctly.







And here are the ones I did before - I bet Qinn will go on cackling.

Honor, the wench said
Jaime knew it was a horse
But she is more.

His sister is DISCO
But his other half lives still
His honor is her

Thank god the first day of poetry challenge was haiku! The only poetry form I (kind of) understand!





Text versions:

Flames hiss and crackle.
Steel parts flesh so easily.
"Burn them all," he said.


Bath water rises,
an enemy's fevered
secrets part the steam.

The maid faced the bear
With only her tourney sword
And one-handed knight.



“Help! The Kingslayer!”
Secrets told and truths revealed.
“My name is Jaime.”



He felt himself stir
At the sight of her blonde bush.
“Platonic” boner.

Erin, thank you for the platonic boner. I needed that Haiku for life.

Forgot to post this one before:

So okay, I tried sonnets... iambs and I are no friends.

Anywho, I guess that kinda fits with the challenge:



And that's one I did in advance, doesn't relate to the challenge directly, but ugh, SONNET. You can go on cackling now, Quinn.

Sonnet attempt! Bear pitt-ery is a popular topic!


Old gods’ vision on unwaking mind weighs
New gods’ censure of sullied man condemns
Loathsome bill’s ill delight for lost limb pays
Desperate Ransom rapt in myth-bound gems

Warrior wakes to salvage furtive love
Maiden despairs the drub of vicious claw
Woman plain of face strong of heart does prove
Man faces beastly dangers beasts do draw

Spurréd by threat of fair love’s endless loss
He welcomes death to stifle beauty’s pain
Spared final fate by courage hid in dross
She clings to love’s gold form upon life’s gain

Love’s duty freed from former poison’s ire
Love’s duty ever bound to heart’s desire

An ode!

A sword he gave her, steel age-old beautiful and rare,
A steed he gave her, strong and tall to bear her form,
Her flaxen hair
Caressed by oncoming storm
She faces friend and foe encased in priceless blue,
She bears his mark on hilt and holy vow,
His honor scorned
By all but his forsworn
She wanders seeking maiden’s blessing on him now.

Damn, riddles are hard!

I only got a lame one:

I have a head, yet I have no mind of my own.
I don't have a voice, yet I can sing.
Knights fall down when they see my beauty.
Who am I?

Ooh, Justme, good one! I'm drawing a blank since I'm actually fairly terrible at riddles, but...the Wind?

The first line made me think "Mountain" and then "Dick" and then "none of those ever work." LOl


Attempt:

I am most prized when dying
I become the lie of love

A gift I am, a slander
A beauty I am, a traitor

I wound her heart and hand
My kind never can she bear to view

Nope, not the wind. It's
[+] spoiler
It's got a pommel in the shape of a lion head, but it only does what Brienne makes it do.
When it's being used, the 'steel sings'
And once you see it in all its glory, you're likely to drop DISCO because it means Brienne has pulled it from its sheath and you're facing the business end.
It's supposed to be Jaime'sHeartSwordPenis
As to yours, I have no idea. Honor? Innocence?
