    Official Haiku Thread

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Frost, Jul 12, 2007.

    For those who don't know what it is:
    Wikipedia
    Get onto it.

    Basically, I write a haiku, and the next person to reply takes a word from my haiku and writes his or hers own haiku. Then, another person comes along and does the same for the person that replied the me. And on it goes.
    And so! I present to you, the beginning haiku:

    As the thread begins
    I craft a beautiful work
    Of boredom and beer.

    Dark craft threads its way
    night conceals illicit work
    along ink black canals

    The love of a Cat
    Goes not by the heart, but by
    His groaning stomach.

    (I've never written one before =P I have no idea if I did this right.)

    Heart-beat breaks silence,
    Fluttering like butterflies,
    Signs of one in love

    Down 'neath the bridges
    Where night hides, devious deals
    Made in spite and hate.

    A world torn in two,
    Hate and bigotry confuse.
    Where has the love gone?

    A bundle of fur and purrs,
    A glorious gift.

    A hug wrapped with love
    A kiss to take the pain from
    Amidst her broke heart.

    Stranger in the house.
    A father she wouldn't know.
    Nor would he know her.

    Hrm. I need to get better at this or suffer more embarrassment.

    Haiku's are hard when your not experienced. Keep practiving though.

    Rain might spoil the mood
    Of this drunken masquerade:
    "Please, may we share beds?"

    ^^ OUch that was a bad one.
