Inspired by a comment from @sheralmyst and @LilLadyD76 in the Waking Titan Future Tasks thread I came up with a Haiku for No Man’s Sky. So here’s a thread for anyone who feels inspired to post a No Man’s Sky themed Haiku poem, with the preferred ‘rule’ - reference ‘No Man’s Sky’ in any way you like. You could be insired by a screenshot, its art, the game’s title, a character, the story, even the puzzling ARG and so on.
It doesn’t have to be particularly connected to No Man’s Sky. The game’s popular science fiction references are a catalyst for creativity, so draw inspiration from anything science fiction that might inspire you. That’s one of the games strengths and most enjoyable aspects. NMS’s science fiction heart beats loudly so let’s hear your Haiku.
Add an accompanying No Man’s Sky image with your poem if you wish or combine the two.
This isn’t a competition but everyone gets kudos for anything posted and bonus points for referencing No Man’s Sky in any way and double bonus points for making us all smile. *Please just post a Haiku poem only in this thread and one accompanying image if you wish. Though you can post as many poems as you like. Thanks!
Haiku art is greater than the poem itself. It is a human expression of the physical world, a thought on the very nature of existence and ideally affects any reader with a strong feeling or impression. The subject matter could be any observation within the Lore of No Man’s Sky.
Haiku Poems as far as I know are three lines only. The first line contains 5 syllables, the second 7 syllables and the third 5 syllables using the pattern 5,7,5. Don’t worry too much about getting syllables right in your language, just don’t use too many, less are preferred but keep to three short lines. There are minor differences in translation from a traditional language Haiku to English regarding syllables. So if anyone wants to write in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and so on, for authenticity or any language that’d be cool too.
