The Infinite Haiku

Postby Grecian man » Fri Dec 07, 2007 3:56 am

I have borrowed this haiku game from another forum the main theme is humour in this one


The last line of the previous person's haiku becomes the first line of the next person's haiku.


a traditional haiku is simply a 5-7-5 syllable format, and for our purposes here, we'll bow to these old gods.


I'll start with a haiku inspired by Robert Frost's poem entitled October:

Morning wind travels
through October's yellow noon;
sunset, red leaves fall.

The last line of my haiku becomes the first of the next.

Sunset, red leaves fall
Most of the people who want to live forever don't know what to do
with themselves on a wet sunday afternoon ...........

sunset, red leaves fall
summer's rusted memory
fading to twilight

fading to twilight
wings of a lark become dark
in the yard a bark
Everything being said to you is true; Imagine what it is true of.

In the yard a bark
of cold wet rough smooth white birch
catching the moonlight

Catching the moonlight
With the tips of his fingers
Silence fills the air

silence fills the air
and lightning strikes between trees
as we fall within.

Autumn Winter Spring
I offer you my heat 'til
Summer comes again
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

mickey_one ~ The previous entry's last line is supposed to be carried over to be your first line... you get another chance ;-) .

The rules around here are that you use the last line of the previous verse
so that you would write something like

like school mascaras
so, like an exquisite corpse
snow, death-masks autumn

or something like that or likely better
Everything being said to you is true; Imagine what it is true of.
