Re: Raspberry Pi - Haiku

Tue Jan 10, 2012 12:38 pm

Inspired by this R-Pi poem, http://www.raspberrypi.org/for.....d%e2%80%a6 it seemed to me that the purpose, dimunitive size, and power, of the Raspberry Pi could suitably inspire and be translated into haiku: short poems based on a traditional Japanese style, consisting of three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.....in_English for a more detailed explanation)

Here are my first, rather feeble, attempts:

A small circuit board

brimming full of potential;

ready to program

and



Credit-card sized board,

eager to educate me.

Now, where do I start?

and

Just a few dollars

Raspberry Pi can open minds

and fill with code joy

Can you do any better? (It shouldn't be difficult!

Please have a go...

(Perhaps the Foundation could offer one of their keyboard stickers to the best entries:)

A raspberry pi in the hand
Is worth two Intel Atoms or a ...
The next couple of lines
Have quite slipped my mind
And the last line I leave up to the student as a problem for homework. See you next lesson.

Oh sorry that's a limerick

What is a haiku?
I have heard of them before
But never seen one
