James Bond haiku-anything goes

In the novel You Only Live Twice, James Bond makes an attempt at writing a haiku poem written in the Basho style:

You only live twice
Once when you are born
And once when you look death in the face

A traditional haiku consists of 17 syllables-five in the first line, seven syllables in the second line and five syllables in the third and final line. Bond himself deviated from this(5-5-9), and so can we. I thought it would be fun to see what you well-spoken people can come up with, inspired by the various films. We should keep it to three lines and less than 20 syllables in total however. It is all for fun, so anything goes. Here is an attempt at a haiku inspired by Connery s introduction scene in DN.

Green filt on the table
One name spoken
Fumes of smoke and danger

A poor attempt, but really looking forward to what you can come up with if you are interested in participating. Any scene, on screen or behind the scenes, or about your own feelings connected to the film, humorous or serious ,are welcome.

    Excellent, people!
    I have changed the title and premise now. Any film any time. Any actor ,scene, or anything Bond related really. You never know when inspiration hits you, and this way it can go on forever.If anyone has a good picture to go with their haiku- all the better!(Just remember:No Bondfilm stills, it is against forum policy.)

    Shot rings out in Hamburg
    Girly agent flaps his arms

    @Thunderfinger I must congralutate you for this brilliant idea! Let's see if I can come up with something.

    (re. Bond's hiatus in SF)

    By the sea he sat
    Drink and poison and some sex
    But London call'd back

    Adrift but not missed
    Shadows call him back
    The aging spy is resurrected

    The day of Sky Fall
    From shadows death crawls
    And only brave men stand tall.

    At first I thought he was confusing things and had Wai Lin in mind, but no ...


    Anyway, here is mine:

    Bond on vacation
    Only a dream
    London calling it seems


    and

    Agent provocateur
    Death for breakfast
    Resurrection does come


    and

    A blunt instrument they say
    His love betrayed and dead
    Yet he lives to fight and love another day

    Being located in Japan, I was wondering when you would show up, @4EverBonded. Thanks! Very good. Now where are all the other litterary geniuses? We have quite a few of them here.

    Well, I'm not very familiar with haiku poetry, with one exception. I love the famous one by Basho so much (empty hut in the woods, if I remember it right). But I usually write bad poetry. However, these are fun! :)

    Ok, here is one:

    A raised eyebrow is his style
    Charm and disarm
    The Bond who gave us Moore

    (That's Moore for "more" - get it? The longest serving Bond, more films, etc. Oh I see, you already got it. I'll just shut the door on my way out now.) :-$

    I feel ambitious enough to cover them all. But not all at once.

    Hi Sean Connery
    The Doc's metal hand
    Honey arises from the sea

    They want the Lektor
    They fight on the train
    Kerim is the man dammit :)
