Haiku Chain

A haiku consists of three lines, where the first line has 5 syllables, the second 7 and the third 5.

Write your haiku using the last line of the previous haiku.

Let's start

we drink maple tea
bright foliage on the porch
autumn afternoon

I've always believed
Poetry is really stupid
And this thread serves only to confirm what I've always thought.

Re: Haiku Chain

Poetic anarchy
Means never paying attention to any
Of the rules, such as the number of syllables one is supposed to write in each line of a haiku poem
Or, indeed, the number of lines.

Re: Haiku Chain

There was an old perv from Glarus
Who was often found to harass
He once took it too far
Keyed the poor girl's car
Then found out she wasn't a lass

Re: Haiku Chain

There was an old chap from Japan
When asked to write haiku said "Man!
I ain't got a clue
Not at all, what to do
I can't even write limericks properly."
