NCIS Haiku HeavenThis is a featured page

◄ Back to NCIS Poems

Haiku are traditionally poems with 17 syllables, arranged in three lines of 5, 7, 5 syllables each. But N-Kiss poets are allowed considerable latitude: like Gibbs, we break the rules. Usually, haikus should evoke an emotion or capture in words something that we normally experience through other senses (such as how we experience winter, summer, spring or autumn). In some of these haikus, you might spot the plot of memorable episodes of NCIS: can you name them? Some are reminders of a character's reaction to a moment within an episode: can you spot which character is evoked by the haiku?

Season six begins
red herrings! banana skins!
tale twisted by traitors
Langer Lee Keating
Gibbons monkeying around
Gibbs patience sore tried

Silver hair and piercing eyes
Shadowed heart, silent stare
Soft-footed, steely mind. Gibbs.
Twinkle eyes, shined pate.
Friendship buried in gruffness
Shared ex-wife: Fornell.

Child reminders
of daughter lost: Saving them
becomes obsessive.
Candle-lit pumpkins
Marilyn Sciuto's white dress
Tattooed Halloween

Scalpel-carved Y-line
Ducky concentrating hard
Evidence pursued
Unguarded remark. A pause.
"He's behind me, isn't he?"
Headslap. "Sorry Boss".

Elevator stopped
Private office, intense words
Exchange of secrets
Brother of half-blood
Brooding charmer, full of hate.
Betrayed sister and Kate.

Snarled anger at men
Who discard fam'ly for cash:
Fatherless child, daughterless Dad.
Banter substitutes
for expression of concern that danger
surrounds one of us

Run through winter park
Punishing regime, self-imposed duty
Pursuit of justice
Red balloon rising
Honour Code at risk, but child
trusts and defends his Dad.

North Korean American
Caught between secrets and spies
Love outweighs duty
Hillbilly hatred
snags marine but unborn child
to be defended

Director takes aim
Shoots down the past with deadly
force. Life ebbs away.
Zipper on a black
body bag in autopsy
Gibbs starts, stills, turns, leaves.

Cassidy so sure
"I was meant to be with them."
Saves others, through death.
Mellowed Tony gives
succour to hurt Cassidy
who advises: "Tell her"

Stomached toe gruesome
Tobias shocked to silence
Victim become predator
Chimney's human soot
Smudges wife's clean record and
Gibbs ponders swallowed toe

Frailty of passion
Exposed to ex-husband who
Chooses to be kind
Washington by night
Dramatic backdrop to wife's
Confession of regret

Sandpapered boat leaks
Music from the past upon
Mann's dreams. Silent end.
A miscount of wives
Hurt hard to share reveals
Man mired in grievous love

Traffic lights flash Morse
A man, entombed, filmed dying
Brooding dark revenge
Shalom my friend but
You were dead. Now I am framed
"Gibbs, perhaps, save me?"

Ship navigation
New agent confusion
"Where did that room go?"
Undercover 'neath
Covers as married couple.
Shared snores and pillows.
Alone, he stands there
Jethro Gibbs - a true Marine
A man of his word
To a Marine's only son
Who will salute his Dad's flag
Alone today, too.
Heart in agony
Sorrow deeper than death
Countenance stony, Gibbs

Soft lit 3a.m.
McGee types, Gibbs sips, awaits
secret hard-won facts
Breath suppressed by water
Life returned by simple words
"I love you, Daddy"

Abby, to attract
McGee's attention claims Gibbs
Fathered her baby

Tony horrified
Rebukes inattentive McGee
Headslap. "Heed Abby".

Outrageous image
Gothic marine Baby Gibbs
Khaki dog collar
NCIS team in love
McAbby, Tiva
Ment to be

silent as a black cat
quick as a cheeta
its Gibbs

Panting in the dark
Tony and Ziva
Kelly, Shannon, Gibbs.
A family no more. Sad.
But in our hearts. Always.
Gibbs, water strife
Tony, kiss of life
What makes friendships
Kelly I miss you
Tell your mommy I love her
I'll see you agian
Captured, Bound and torturted
"Tell me everything you know"
But her friends she won't betray.
