Haiku poetry is small enough that color names, combined into palettes, can be read as a poem.
Bring your poetic pen, named colors or selected existing ones to compose your own original Haiku or use an existing poem by someone else to inspire your color choices. You can even combine your colors with colors of others.
If you are not a poet, why not make a pattern from one of our haiku palettes?

One Lover Haiku 1LP

This is the place to post poems using existing colors named by only one ColourLover.

Of course, to increase your creative flexibility, you'll want to pick a ColourLover who has a lot of colors (i.e.: manekineko, angelafaye or our very good friend ycc2106). Click on their names to see how many colors they have. At the bottom of this post is a list of ColourLovers who have 1,000 colors or more.

Creations for this thread will also qualify for the "One Lover at a Time" Group. But, the tag for that group "1LP" added to our group's tag "HPP", will take 7 characters including a space in the name. So, unless you're can abbreviate really well or your poem has a very small name, please just use the HPP tag for the name but be sure to click both the 1 Lover and Haiku boxes before saving (that is if you are a member of both groups). Otherwise, you can post your palette in the appropriate Lover's profile (personal and in 1LP) and consider yourself done.

Suggestion: please post the text of your poem just above your colorful creation(s) so that viewers can read it without having to click to open. Please always include the author's name with each poem. Whether they are your words or someone else's, credit must be given where it is due.

Have fun!

Wow! Great idea! Wonderif that's difficult... I think so, hence they definitely need a special place.

I think some may have colour names more appropriate than others.
A COLOURlover with a really a LOT a colors is: Darius! aka COLOURlover! =)


And as it's also a 1LP, you are welcome to also post to 1LP!

Thank you Poetatete! =)

Hi Haiku ColourLovers!

Welcome to the first "One Lover Challenge". Every week or two, a ColourLover who has named at least one thousand colors will be selected as our Loved Color Namer.

The challenge is simply to create a HAIKU poem from this person's color names and post it in the 1LP HAIKU discussion thread (and in the 1LP Group). Also post it in any other discussion threads as applicable (i.e.: Perfect Match).

Our first Loved Color Namer is YCC2106. If you have any questions, please send me a love note.

oh well thank you!

I do have a lot of colours but I'm not sure if my color names are easy for this!!

Also, just incase, can be useful to know: some of my old colours are tagged - I did that when the search option sliders didn't work.
You can search for example red, dark, flashy, dirty... (and rounded HSV numbers like h150, s90, v50 but the sliders do that now)

I know it won't be easy, but I'll be looking forward to see the palettes! Good luck!
Me, I could cheat... =P

I'm not sure what all of this means but I can say that you can post your own 1LP HPP here even if it doesn't qualify for the One Lover Group.
