    The Continuation Haiku Game

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Frederyk, Mar 7, 2010.

    The rules are simple. Post a haiku using the traditional 5-7-5 syllabic layout. The last line of your haiku shall be the first line for the next poster's.

    You may not respond to your own post.

    I'll go first,

    Biological
    Their processes continue
    If only to die

    If only to die
    then why do we live at all
    perhaps just to dream

    Perhaps just to dream
    Upon this cloud of embrace
    Here, swiftly falling

    Here, swiftly falling
    up into the sky we go.
    Is this fun, or what?

    knowing that it had to be
    goldfish down the drain

    We must persevere
    Pain is only in the flesh
    Freedom, in the soul

    sitting by a perfect rose

    reflection, in pain
    sorrow seems to be the aim
    happiness is vain

    Happiness is vain
    Self-absorption feeds the jaws
    Tasting our demise

    "Family, no more!"
    Is the Amazon's war cry.
    Her bow brings swift death.

    I need to hide scars
    so that I forget the pain
    and remember love
