New Haiku Game

(1/99) > >>

witt:
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

Mystic1:
polliwogs -
crowding the pond
first spring rain

Next Word:

DUSK

Halo:
insects swarm
daylight fading
frenzied dusk

Next Word:

RUSH

witt:
whizzing cars
speeding semi's
I eighty-five


Next word:

pumpkin

Halo:

midnight tight
green vines winding
pumpkins ripe

New Word:

TREASURE
