Haiku-Poems About Six 2011-films I Watched Recently

Inspired by the Limerick Reviews Stevee did on a few films she recently saw, I decided to try out some filmic poetry, too. As I caught up with some 2011 hits or non-hits last week, I thought it was fitting to select these and show my reflections in the Haiku poems, because we learned about Haiku poems in school...

Haiku: Haiku is a japanese poem, consisting of three lines (in japanese, there have to be 5-7-5 syllables). The poems are concrete and do not show exact feelings.


Anyway, here we go, before I change my mind:

Carnage

„After the show
it must
go on“


Shor in the City

„In the end
there is
no excuse“

Elle s'appelait Sarah

„At the sea
I do
not find them“

The Dirty Picture

„A silky lotus
floats on
its own“


Limitless

„The balcony,
where your feet
no longer stand“

Delhi Belly

„A car
crashes against
a dustbin“ 


I hope you liked the poetry; I'm afraid it's not as concrete as genuine Haikus are supposed to be, because I tend to be more of a dreamy poet.

    1. I didn't just want to use ordinary pictures like always, so I tried to be a little creative :). Glad you and everybody else likes it. Thank you.

    1. It was awesome! So many people said that it was just an attempt at being funny, and that India still has to go a long way, but I think it was really, really good.
      And oh my God, Imran looks hotter than ever as a "bad boy", haha.

  4. I'm so jealous you and Nikhat have seen Carnage already! I'm dying to see it, it's not out yet.
    The Haiku's are quite beautifully written - 'dreamy' as you put it :) The last time I wrote a Haiku was in school, for a class exercise. I have no talent with poetry! :P

    1. Really? It has been out here since October, but I only watched it now because it wasn't released in our multiplex, so I had to wait for the repertory release.
      Thank you, Ruth :). I love poetry a lot, but I'm not sure if I'm talented.

  6. Elle s'appelait Sarah, or Sarah's Key, is really good, among my top 30 films from 2011. I was surprised to see on IMDB it didn't get more nominations and awards!
    Nice job. My least fav of your poems was Delhi Belly, my most fav was the Limitless poem.

    1. It was better than I had thought, but not totally mind-blowing either.
      Thank you :). Have you seen Delhi Belly? Maybe it's hard to understand the poem otherwise.
