Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

Share your haikus! (Possible NSFW)

Reviving this from the old Herpy site, as people found it enjoyable (like myself) and with this new system of notifications, it should be far easier to keep track of it.

To refresh your memory, or in case you didn't know, a haiku is a three line poem. The first line is five syllables, the second is seven syllables and the last is five again.

Ex.
No Hershey for you. (5)
We'll get candy tomorrow. (7)
Patience, my child. (5)

Depending on how you pronounce things, syllables another person posts might seem off to you. Be mindful of that, as this is really for fun and creativity and not harsh critiquing.

Disclaimer: Not all haikus make sense, but they are all interesting!

So come on, post your haiku poems! ^. .^

Safety at its best.
Keeps the barrel far away.
Don't stress the trigger.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!...
Ad Infinitum.

Interesting. Some of the best haikus don't outright tell you what it is about. ^. .^

Posting on Herpy.
Getting attention for it.
Why can't we like posts?

I can't say I'm an avid haiku writer, as I haven't really written any--except for one!

This one I wrote about my 'sona, Saber, for a little competition of sorts on FA not too long ago. =3

Likes to smile a lot
‘Cause it makes others smile too
And looks quite handsome!
Hello! Dragon here. Rawr!

Dragon in the air
Wings spread in flight with a roar
Freedom above ground.
People are like dragons. They can be dangerous, but they can be friendly. But whatever you are, take flight into the blue abyss of endless possibility!

Hot crimson within
Like torrent of flames
Everlasting fray

===========

For He who defy
The great big turning cogs
No forgiveness

===========

The cool comfort
A roar upon the cliffs
going in deep

===========

Like gust of wind
A soar in the skies
Where it takes?

===========

A line in sand
No begining and no end
always slipping

===========

Wave unseen
Bears the dreams of one
How much I yearn
Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...

That's a lot, Rasalom!

I made one for my sona:

Wiggling her tail.
Scales of violet, shimmer.
Rendrassa, you tease!

Yeah... When I started it was kinda hard to stop...


Fire on water
warfare on the edge
Breathtaking sight

===================

Man equal god
And ginny out of his bottle
For a high price
Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...

They can be addictive, so short and don't take long to make. Plus the challenge of fitting what you want to say in the restrictions of each line.

Sleeping peacefully
The alarm clock starts to scream
Grudgingly gets up

The majestic horse.
Running through the countryside.
It's snowing on Mt. Fuji.

Fickle memory,
Are you long term or short term?
God, make up your mind!

I'm out of ideas
For my direction in life;
I am a lost soul...

Do you like magic
Or prestidigitation?
Good, neither do I.
Within thyself is the potential for many great and miraculous things.
You just need to take the time to discover how to perform them.

There shall be wings
I can go even higher!
Famous last words...

==================

Bright green on dark
The nostalgia of eight
I miss them alot
Don't kill the edge and become like the rest.
Don't lose the faith that made you who you are
Don't kill the edge that manifests inside
This world is mine; it's where my thoughts collide...
