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.
. . . 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!
