haiku_game
Strideo its simple. just make a haiku that has something to do with the haiku that the last skite wrote.

For example:

great bird in the sky!
i wish i had your freedom.
to poo on some heads.

the next one could be:

evil wicked bird!
why did you poo on my head?
i am so ashamed.

and so on:

my shame is so clear.
it rings in my head like bells.
it tears at my heart.

oldephebe god. i cannot write haikus.. man! 040411

from my eyes, today nothing

Doar everyone would be
lost without a trail to guide
them to the river.
040412
...
z sand is falling grains
cast along channels cut through
the rivers long run
040412
...
stork daddy childish nostalgia -
the river often flooded;
now, too dry to swim.
040412
...
Doar The secret swimming
hole vanished when whispers crept
out between bought mouths.
040412
...
eskimos friend mementos kept safe,
those happy times lost at last;
i watch my house burn.
040412
...
eskimos friend i apologise,
that was meant to go before
death of a rose. damn.
040412
...
Doar prostration game show,
penitent with sorrow held
after crossed wires.
040412

and suffers until he sees
there are no winners.

Death of a Rose surrounding your fugue,
momentous callings are brought
forth for bright weavings

echoes absorbed into walls
rococo ears deaf
040412

have oft touched my soul)
040412
...
eskimos friend "i never loved you";
numb, silenced, i choke and scream

Doar beaten on the head,
with your cold war, raging inside,
small desperate words.
040412
...
z the art of war lives
we learn to hate carefully

Poison drips over burnt skin,
Seeping on remorse.

You crowned me 'Empress'. Then Betrayal.
Ah, 'Et tu, Bruté?'.

eskimos friend wordless wordsmiths cry;
fearing contemplation, my
thoughts must go un-thought.
040413
...

z Rhin:

Haiku is a small poetry with oriental metric that appeared in the XVI century and is very popular, mainly in Japan.

It's a contemplative poetry that valorizes nature, color, season, contrasts and surprises. Usually it has 3 lines and 17 syllabes distributed in 5, 7 and 5. It must register or indicate a moment, sensation, impression or drama of a specific fact of nature. It's almost like a photo of some specific moment of nature.

More than inspiration, one needs meditation, effort and perception to compose a real Haiku. (Bill Higginson)
