AGS aka Haiku Shake is a haiku generator. Tilting to the left begins the trickling of the haiku. Each haiku is generated randomly based on 3 haiku forms and a set of preselected words. To generate a new haiku, just shake it.

Ags has 3 haiku forms along with a list of words hard coded onto the chip. Each shake generates a random selection of words to fit the 5 7 5 syllable format as well as 3 predetermined haiku forms.

form1:
article adjective noun
article noun verb preposition article noun
adjective adjective noun

form2:
noun preposition article noun
article adjective noun preposition article noun
adjective noun

form3:

Examples of some randomly generated haikus from Ags:
either funny hand
a bank flies on which treasure
constant brutal hand

this perfect grapefruit
a grapefruit brings for this tree
warming smiling clown

sea on a flower
which hidden beat with a clown
warming harmony

a patient light sky
but a perfect umbrella
flowing flower hugs

which pretty white rain
against a pretty puddle
hidden puddle

gate for either dish
which brutal breeze through that room
smiling umbrella

a forgiving sky
a spoon juggles but a clown
warming constant sky
