    Clear Jewel on a Leaf-point Trembles: Drip! A River Starts

    Solitude comes
    AARs pile a foot high
    Near by bed.

    To this tale of Japan,
    Slow as meditation
    Welcome, my readers.

    I’m not the first one
    To AAR in haiku…
    Evoke memories.

    EU-2 version 1.07:
    Over vastness of planet
    Dreams wander on.

    Latest patches applied:
    Improve the essence of game…
    Savour delicacy.

    Normal/Normal.
    Simplicity
    Is seductive.

    Join me, to paint
    Word pictures so clear, so sharp
    Like katana blades.

    Dew drop falls from a
    leaf-point: indeed, how slowly
    A mountain stream starts.

    A Japanese Haiku AAR? Looking forward to it, we have too few poetry AARs here.

    My goodness, AARing spree by Gaijin! Duck and cover, folks!

    Another one, Sasha? And in haiku? I'm impressed. This will be truly interesting.

    From every direction
    Cherry blossom petals blow
    Into Lake Biwa

    Gaijin went mad
    And is spamming the webspace
    With his AARs.



    With more friends
    Replying to this story
    I bow to the screen.

    A map of dew drops.
    And in every small droplet
    a world of violence.


    A learned samurai:
    Comes our first diplomat…
    Utter aloneness.

    By blooming peach flowers
    And by the lantern of moon
    He goes to China.

    Thunder and lightning.
    The startled Chinese receive
    A statement of war.

    Nothing in the cry
    of cicadas suggests they
    are about to die.

    Manchu from the North
    Daiviet from the South, and we
    from the Eastern seas.

    Even the strongest
    Oak tree breaks when it is
    Bent by tsunami.

    The war rages on...
    Under dead soldier's helmet,
    a cricket sings.

    A proud Mandarin
    brings us a scroll, and in it
    three provinces. Peace.




    I’ve used liberally inspirations and direct quotations from the great Basho.

    Isn't that the picture of the "Warrior Code" improvement from CIV2?

    Nice first installment, Gaijin! Exactly how far into the game have you progressed?

    And I wonder how long it will be before M-T pops in?

    A very unorthodox AAR which you seem to be handling very well! But why should I be surprised?

    I don't know art, but I know what I like!
    Quite a change from the usual (if there's such a thing) AAR, but very well done. I'll hang around silently, so as not to disrupt the serenity of your haiku.

    Five sylables good
    Seven more even better
    Five ends poem for all


    But I think Sasha is going to be more liberal.

    Like misty moonlight
    Is exquisite and dreamlike
    The haiku spirit.

    Counting syllables
    Like counting stars in the sky,
    Mystifies your mind…

    Reply in haiku
    Charm yourself with elegance
    Enjoy graceful game.

    This is amazing. I've always admired people who can write any kind of poetry, probably because I've never been any good at it!


    And it is interesting to see the Chinese provinces in Russian. It's already difficult enough to pronounce anything from China, then I have to consider all the intricacies of Russian pronunciation. I've come to the conclusion that the Russian and Chinese languages are best kept apart.

    Keep up the good work!
