    {un}holy?! haiku challenge



    Here's a challenge for those of you with outstanding debts to society .. You know who you are; you wordsmiths of vicious repute. The thrust of this challenge is to create a series of haiku that are linked -- the last line of one is the first line of the next and so on ..

    quick example:

    Keeping faith is rough
    When the chips are down and I
    Stand, unrequited

    Stand, unrequited
    In pale beams of a guiltless
    Moon -- devoid of self

    cool? cool!

    So .. I leave the seed to you folk. Someone start it off. I love haiku, 'cuz that's what I started writing back in grade 7 when my creative mind leaped from my skull and planted a flag in the floor of my classroom.

    Props to Bartleby for giving me the idea
    Judged by the blind, not nearly;
    Just face the Sun when you prey.

    I knew it had somethign to do witht he infamous. If I had any conept of writing Haiku myself I would start, just for the challenge, but unfortunately I don't. But it sounds like something all those poets should get a leg in on, and prove that you're multitalented.

    This sounds like fun...

    All that's left is me,
    Staring sadly down at the
    Corpses of my friends.

    corpses of my friends
    gravestones and alabaster tears
    frozen memories
    Nature weeps, the devil sings
    at mans greed and pride
    and what it brings

    Just lots of useless
    little things

    Frozen memories
    I supplicate to the Ice
    To release my fear

    Excellent! I like where this is going .. I'm always a sucker for modern haiku. Keep it rollin' guys and dolls!

    To release my fear
    Silent screams, alone, naked
    I submerge myself
    Nature weeps, the devil sings
    at mans greed and pride
    and what it brings

    Just lots of useless
    little things

    I submerge myself.
    Into forgotten grey crypts.
