Something that might be neat....

Ok, new to the group, but seeing a group full of women who write poetry got me thinking.

My father used to be part of an online fourm, and one of the things they did would to be have like a 'haiku post" where the first person would post a haiku, and than the next person would take the last line of the first haiku and write another haiku with it.  

It just seemed like something that would be fun.

I'll just post one to start and  if you like the idea, than go for it.

Spring winds start to blow
After cold of winters' bite
New life starts to bloom

(For those who don't know haikus, its a three line poem.  First line is 5 syllables, second is 7 syllabels and the third line is back to 5 again)

All is birthed anew
When sunshine climbs again up high
New feathers soon to fly

How as that?

I'll give it a shot  :o)

All is birthed anew
when pen is put to paper
the soul can fly free

OOPS ~ Forgot I had to use the last line of the previous - I changed it by a syllable though - feathers to wings . . .

New wings soon to fly
little ones will leave the nest
taking to the sky

Crystal  :o)

This is so cool!

Taking to the sky
The promise of adventure
Shadows overhead

Shadows overhead
Thunder rumbles o'er the earth
Droplets fall from high.

Droplets fall from high
for the earth to quench her thirst
new flowers will bloom

Quoting qwietpleez:

Droplets fall from high
for the earth to quench her thirst
new flowers will bloom
Already used the word bloom . . .

Droplets fall from high
for the earth to quench her thirst
new life will take seed

Does that sound dumb?

New life will take seed
as the sequence of cleansing
brings us full circle

Brings us full circle
The candle burns low only to
Light a brand new flame

I'm glad everyone has taken to this so much, I just thuoght it'd be a neat idea
