Rikchik Haiku

This is some rikchik haiku, because rikchik stories are very difficult for a human to write. Rikchik haiku is 5 words, 7 words, and 5 words. Since 5 is a big number for humans and 7 is a big number for rikchiks, this is a very popular poetry form among pro-human rikchiks.

The North Wind and the Sun: take 1

I'm working on "The North Wind and the Sun" in rikchik. It's taking a while, though. In the meantime, here's a version in rikchik haiku.

The sun and the wind from the north arguing.

Enjoying the warmth (from that sun), not enjoying that wind, a human.

"The sun is most strong", says the wind.


National Day

This is a haiku I wrote while sitting on Boston's Esplanade on the Fourth of July.

The day of a human nation

Sun warms seven sevens of human families

I'm in a family that enjoys the wind and eats.

I ride a big travel machine.

"Math, language, or what?" someone asks me.

"A language by me", I tell her.
