  • Extend the haiku chain....

    Heres my haiku chain:
    I start it with my haiku.
    Now you continue....

    Now you continue
    By taking my final line
    As a starting point.

    As a starting point,
    This is so uninspiring!
    Let's brighten things up

    Let's brighten things up
    ......etc

    Anyone care to continue the haiku chain, with one haiku stanza at a time

    Oops, I pressed post by accident before I had finished explaining! In short, if you fancy extending the haiku chain just continue with the next stanza, taking the last line of the one before. The challenge is to add some interest and humour but still provide a last line that will work as a first line for the next verse. Anybody fancy extending the chain now that I've finished explaining?!

            Our memories etched
            On a hundred year oak tree
            Forever remain

              Forever remain
              Listening to heart's desires
              Acting without care

                Acting without care
                We should swing into action,
                As if like lightning.

                  As if like lightening
                  Flashing clashing zig zag beam
                  Path illuminate

                    Hi RhymeLovingWriter,
                    Thamks for joining in. I know that haikus traditionally shouldnt rhyme, but hey, we're making our own rules up here anyway so ,just for you, I've made my next response rhyme! (Truthfully, I am going cold turkey from rhyming so you have given me the perfect excuse to break from my self discipline. Thanks )

                  Guide me to my beloved
                  Fling open the gate

                    Fling open the gate
                    Take one step, then another
                    Just follow your heart

                      Just follow your heart
                      For there, dreams are created,
                      Nurtured and treasured.

                        Nurtured and treasured
                        Child within his mother's womb
                        Present by His grace.

                            I begin to breathe again
                            The water calls me
