Fellowship Of The Ring Haiku: The Shadow of the Past

Truth, burned to gold skin.
The Ring, now Frodo’s burden.
May it burn, for Good.

  2. The Shadow of the Past – rarasaur
  3. Three is Company – The Indecisive Eejit
  4. A Shortcut to Mushrooms – N.E. White
  5. A Conspiracy Unmasked – Cimmorene
  6. The Old Forest – Dan Dan The Art Man
  7. In the House of Tom Bombadil – Cimmorene
  8. Fog on the Barrow-downs – Dan Dan The Art Man
  9. At the Sign of the Prancing Pony – Rob’s Surf Report
  10. Strider – Cimmorene
  11. A Knife in the Dark – N. E. White
  12. More coming soon!  See the full project here: http://laith.wordpress.com/2014/01/21/haiku-project-fellowship-of-the-ring/

Bonus knock knock joke:

Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Hobbit who?
Hobbit letting me in?


  1. I like the haiku, even though I am a bad nerd who hasn’t seen any of the movies.

    Totally trying the joke on the kid when he gets up. If he rolls his eyes, then it’s a success (that’s teenager for “It’s funny but I don’t want to admit it”).


  2. I can’t find the link to the challenge, does that mean you’re all full up? Here’s one for The Bridge of Khazad-dûm:

    Orcs swarm Balin’s tomb
    Balrog comes, Fellowship runs
    Gandalf falls to doom
