Here are a couple to get you started...


Inara came back
Brought social grace to the crew
Jayne back in his bunk


Hell of a pilot
Wash steered clear of turbulance
A leaf on the wind


Kaylee and Simon
Kept apart by little sis
Who swallowed a bug

A piece of fei-oo?
Just a plain object in space?
No, Serenity

Pretty mechanic
Doctor with a crazy sis
You mean to say.. sex?

Inara's new guest
Gosh.. they look so glamorous
I'll be in my bunk

grief:
How to say never?
We'll never see home again.
No second season.

lust:
Forever in an
instant - freeze frame on Nathan
- I don't move, don't breathe

(of course i'm young and beautiful. of course i am. really.)

Almost seems stolen. But go

Hey there OLDFOGEY
Little help with your Haikus
Must keep the rhythm

Ain't hard to explain
He's the Hero of Canton
The man they call Jayne

Kaywinnit Lee Frye
She wears her heart on her sleeve
and bear on her pants

Cap'n Mal Reynolds
Puts his crew before his self
Never stops flying

Firefly Episodes in Haiku

Our Mrs Reynolds:

What's that? I'm married?
Jayne, how drunk was I last night?
Oh, shit! This girl's nut!

Out of Gas:

Look at my new ship!
This thing is a death trap, sir.
It's freedom; you'll see.

Trash:

Oh, shit, my wife's back!
"Take the job." "Don't trust her, sir."
Oh, no, not again!

War Stories:

You always go with!
Fine, have it your own way, then.
Ouch! Zoe was right.

Shindig:

Here are your invites
This is my kind of party
I got stabbed right here\

Jaynestown:

That's some creepy art
Welcome back Jayne! We love you!
I ain't no hero

Objects in Space (good one for poetry)

It's just an object
It doesn't mean what you think
It's very crowded!

Strains the mind a bit
Maybe came down the chimney
Give you a present

A bounty hunter?
Not really. Then what are you?
A bounty hunter.

Look at River's feet
They are the story tellers
Joss is such a boob

I did Wash above so here are a few more of the crew... still working on the rest...


Hero of Canton,
And you lot can't change that by
gettin' all... bendy


No pow'r in the 'verse
Keep her from bein' cheerful:
Sweet little Kaylee


Not just a good man,
Nor okay. A great man, but
Bad. (in the Latin)


This one doesn't quite fit because it strays into the real world, so I'll keep working on a "proper" one for her. Then again, I guess it's appropriate that the River one ain't quite right...

River -- Summer Glau --
Your name is good for Haiku:
Seasonal word, see.

River's craaazzzzyyy...
Oops, not enough syllables
in first line. SUMMER!!!


Seems like "meta-river" haikus are much easier to write than coming up with a real one ;)

Some of these were posted above but the crew's a family, and family belongs together...


Don't curse sudden but
Inevitable demise:
Leaf on wind still soars


No pow'r in the 'verse
Keep her from bein' cheerful --
Ooh! Synchronizers!


Hero of Canton,
And you lot can't change that by
Gettin' all... bendy


Not just a good man,
Nor okay. A great man, but
bad. (in the Latin)


Heathens aplenty,
Bible broken, too much hair:
That's not a shepherd.


Functions like a girl,
But then -- apple bits -- chaos --
Threw up on your bed.


To ends of the 'verse,
Follow beloved captain
But why? Not _his_ wife...


Sure, I use curse words
When appropriate... Hero?
Jayne? Son of a bitch!


Don't call her a whore:
She makes an honest living.
Term is "companion".

RIVER

I see them reach out
the hands of blue, two by two
rubbery meddle

BOOK

not with extenders
have I seen a ship like this
worth how I got here

BIG SHIP

Fireflies have nooks
for hiding grade A foodstuffs
for hiding big faith

Sometimes counting is hard.
S'posed to contain reference to seasons too, but what if there's not really any seasons where you live? I made this one about Los Angeles:

Morning gridlock. All
My options involve waiting
For others to move.

...so, what's L.A. got to do with Firefly? um,
"You live in a spaceship, dear."

For Serenity:
Nine souls in constant limbo
Find themselves in you.

--

They're grenades, Cap'n.
What, you don't want to take them?
Hey, I warned you, man.

--

Leather over heart
Vulnerability there
Armor versus leaf

--

Crazy? Broken brain?
I've felt enough to know I've
Felt too gorram much.

--

Sensory creature
Not just an ox with a gun
I'll be in my bunk.


Heh, these are fun! Mine aren't terribly good, but they do make a fella think, don't they?
