New Haiku Game
« on: October 22, 2009, 11:50 AM »
Here's a new haiku game where we won't be restricted by the 5-7-5 rule. We can write more in the Japanese style, mostly dealing with nature and using economy of words. You, of course, can use the pattern 5-7-5 if you wish.

In this game, we will be given a word about which to write. The poet writes a haiku about the word and then gives the next word challenge.

I'll begin:

dew

heavy dew
deluge to mites
washed away

Next word:

TADPOLE

Next Word:

DUSK
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.
