Poetry Game - First Line, Last Line

I recently found out about a little poetry game we can all play.  One person writes a poem and the next person starts a poem with the last line of the poem immediately before it.  We can do different forms and haiku form - we just need to specify which for each individual game. 

It goes like this:  Laughing hard, she fell down softly

into the freshly fallen leaves of gold

Brushing off the dirt, she stood to face the sun

Which seemed to envy her every move.

Next: 

. . . Which seemed to envy her move,

The lion paced to and fro

but remained in the same place anyway. 

Haikus are 5 syl., 7 syl and 5 syl (I think) - But we can start with just poetry.

What do ya'll think?  I've been playing this game on another site but it works better in a continuous thread (different windows though) as in a forum discussion.  Which we can do here.

Just an idea - I think it's fun.  It also stirs up the creative juices!

Cool, Lucky Duck - by I'm ducking out now and heading for the pillow. Tomorrow maybe? Or just start the thread on your own - others will follow. They don't have to be here when you are to post as long as they know the rules!
