I propose a new poetry thread with minimal simple rules as follow:

* A pattern of 3/5/3 haiku (That is- three syllables in first line, five syllables in second line, three in third). NO OTHER HAIKU RULES APPLY- it ain't gotta be haiku, just 3/5/3 and done.

* Your submission should build on the last to create an ongoing tale, give the next person somewhere to go, don't write the ending.

* Don't post your comments on the thread- use the separate commentary thread.

* Be considerate, concise, and creative.

* MANDATORY: Have fun!


Let's begin...


I woke up
and smelled the coffee
in my pants

too much coffee water haiku

River runs
Even under ice
Sings, unseen…

…Under ice
River runs in rich
Silver thread…

…Water weaves
Fast and far away
Moving on…

…Water will
Love you and leave you
Onward gone…

…Beauty moves
Forward without us
As does truth…
