Something that might be neat....

Posted by   + Show Post
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)

I lie to myself  (took out a syllable)

to profess my love

For you do not care
You do not even seek love

Quoting lanimommy81:

For you do not care
You do not even seek love
Shallow words bruise deep

I have to say to Ianimommy81, that the line "Shallow words bruise deep"  made me cry. This is beautiful... it's much of how I'm feeling right now. Thank you for expressing it that way. It is those words exactly I was looking for and could not find.

I sense no feeling  (changed for syllable count)
when you look into my eyes
you look right through me

I LOVE this, I went back and read it from the beginning - I can't wait to see where it goes! 

Don't forget that we are following the haiku 5, 7, 5 syllable count    :o)

I think it wold be fun if we started a story version . . . each writer picks up where the last chapter ended. If you'd like to do that as well let me know, I think it would be not only fun, but a great writing exercise.  Hugs ~ Crystal

You look right through me
and you miss the pain inside
because of yourself


I like the story idea, too!
