Haiku Continued

Post by Zathyr » Thu Feb 28, 2013 2:24 am

Haiku Continued
Really quite a simple game
Here is what you do:

Here is what you do
The last line from one haiku
Is first for the next

Is first for the next?
Yes, like what I'm doing here
One haiku per post

One haiku per post?
But there's three here already
Actually four now

Actually, for now
I am just explaining things
You know, how it goes

You know how it goes
Five syllables, then seven
Then five once again

Then five once again
As we pick up for the next
And so, we begin!

EDITing new rule:
Wait for two others to post
Between your haiku

Or alternately
Wait for twenty-four hours
Of no one posting

Even then, patience
May be the prudent action
Haiku can take time

After you've left me
I find myself wondering:
Can I continue?
