Hello, and first of all - thank you for this opportunity.
I won't be doing a haiku, but I will say that most of the people doing haiku here are doing it wrong.
One of my wife's friends is a student of one of the last Haiku Masters and she has one quite the impressive number of competitions on Haiku. I won't be giving out names, but I'm pretty sure a person like her knows how to do it.
So, Andrew, I hope by explaining what a real haiku is in the comments to at least save you from reading wrongly written ones.
A Haiku is not a 5/7/5 verse like most people think. This is a "false haiku", or at least that is how most haiku writers refer to it. It's a derivative form from the original and is not widely used, because it tends to be closer to poetry and math, than to the Haiku itself - and haiku is all about giving out an emotion through an image portrayed in only three rows. The rules for the real Haiku are simple: there is three parts. One is called a Phrase and is a longer sentence, taking up two rows, then we have a pause (we must have a pause, it's a rule, yes), and then we have the Fragment which is a little sentence taking up only one row. It is used to sum up everything in most cases. It is your choice entirely weather to start with the Fragment or the Phrase. Like so: (me being a haiku master now :D)

It is dark, winds are blowing
the moon is full.
A raven's claw slashes a bat's wing.


A raven's claw slashes a bat's wing.
It is dark, winds are blowing,
the moon is full.

It is almost the same, yet different. And that there is the art of the haiku. I hope my explanation has been interesting to read and helpful. ^^ Have a great day everyone.

This place has been a life saver stirring away from Apps I would have wasted my money on in the past and helped me make better choices, also helped me save a little money with their tracking of apps that go on sale. Thank you Andrew and all of Appspy's staff I salute you!

The player's finger swipes
Swipe swipe tap tap

I can't remember exactly how to write a haiku :( Hopefully my memory serves me and I didn't completely mess that up.

According to the Code of the Samurai, a samurai was supposed to commit ritual suicide upon the loss of his master. One who chose not to honor the code was "on his own" and was meant to suffer great shame. The undesirability of rōnin status was mainly a discrimination imposed by other samurai and by the feudal lords.

Someone, in his final exams in school, needed to write an article of 2 pages about "Courage".
The only thing he wrote on the paper was "This is Courage".
and he scored 100.
Thats what im doing right now.

Did you know that in modern Japanese the term "ronin" also describes a secondary school graduate who has not yet been admitted to university?

I have some words of wisdom to aspiring haiku writers.

Haikus are easy
But they often don't make sense

Sorry i'll try again

The only problem
with haiku is that you just
get started and then...

Best of luck to all
I hope I can get rōnin
Andrew, you're the best!

Hey appspy my English is really bad but I would just like to say that as a person who has been subscribed to you since the very beginng, you are an amazing reviewer. I have never seen a reviewer put so much of their time into their reviews, you always talk to the fans if they need help or If they just need go ask something. I would just like to thank you for all these years of amazing reviews, thank you Appspy.

In Winning This Game
Ya, I am

Probably not the best attempt, but I tried :)
Also, kinda fuzzy on the rules of haiku. I was told that it's supposed to be 3-5-3 syllables, not 5-7-5 as often used (5-7-5 is sounds from Jap language), but whatever.
