Places In Middle Earth: Haiku – I did people, here are some places!

by Mar 2, 2003Poetry

For those that don’t know Haiku is an ancient Japanese art form, usually inspired by nature or emotion. A Haiku always consists of three lines, the first with 5 syllables, the second with 7, and the third with 5.

Last time I wrote haiku on the members of the Fellowship, these are on several places in Middle Earth.

Peaceful, bright and green
In Eriador, The Shire
Home to the Halflings

The village of Bree
Home to the Prancing Pony
Found at a crossroads

Prosperous place, Dale
Destroyed by the dragon, Smaug
Was rebuilt by Bard

An Elven haven
Rivendell, a place of learning
Wisdom prevails here

Lothlorien is
The land of blossoms dreaming
Elf-kingdom of peace

Home of Treeherders
Fangorn forest, or Entwood
Treebeard’s ancient home

Rohan, Riddermark
Grassland with many borders
Realm of the Horse-Lords

Dunedain kingdom
Land of valiant warriors
Elendil’s Gondor

Rich, vast, Dwarven realm
Moria, or Khazad-dum
Evil reclaimed it

Orthanc, Isengard
Made evil by Saruman
Ents marched against it

“Tower of the Moon”
Made into Minas Morgul
“Tower of the Wraiths

Fortress of Sauron
The Dark Tower, Barad-dûr
Place of great evil

Orodruin, Mount Doom
Sauron’s forge for the One Ring
Mountain of red flame

The Undying Lands
Valinor, to which Elves sail
Where the Valar dwell

I hope you enjoyed these, and I hope you will take the time to tell me which were your favorites and which ones you thought stank! Thanx
