    Never Ending Haiku

    Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras, in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5.

    For the purpose of this game, we'll 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 player's.

    Example
    Player 1:
    The night sleeps away (5 syllables)
    Farther and farther it goes (7 syllables)
    beyond the world's grasp (5 syllables)

    Player 2:
    beyond the world's grasp (5)
    lie many things-the dreams of (7)
    poor fools and great kings. (5)

    No idea if this game had any potential but we won't know unless we try, right?

    I'll begin with ...

    Silence all around
    I hear a loud emptiness
    Am I alone here?

    She will be back soon
    Bringing durians from around
    The kampongs nearby
    Some people wait for things to happen. Some make things happen. Many just don't know WHAT HAPPENED!!!

    Dude, you should begin with "Alas! I lost her".

    Game Rule: The last line of your haiku shall be the first line for the next player's.

    With so many games threads, it's a challenge to remember all the rules.

    Just pretend only . . . .
