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)

Thank you for clarifying the syllable count... I couldn't remember and I was trying to go by some of the ones before me and I couldn't figure it out!! :)
Thanks! :)

Quoting pamlarson:

Stuck in this abyss
For what seems like forever
sinking deeper still

Sinking deeper still
 Fighting against this deluge
Ocean swallows me
