ok, dear potatoes,

i know it's lame and stale, but i'd like to give it a shot, anyway...

so, here's my idea of an endless haiku:

1) each line should be written by a separate person, and the person that follows, should try (at least) to catch the idea of the prior one...

For example, if i write the first line:

. Butterfly wings

Then the next potato continues:

. Colour the rainbow.

Then the third one:

. A child smiles.

Then the fourth one starts the new verse, and so on...

2) since, i suppose, we will do it mainly in English, i won't care about the number of the syllables/on's as long as it's not too much... at any case, please try not to make lines longer than 7-8 syllables...

3) i will gather the best hits/verses in the OP with credits to the respective poet :)

p.s. here are some verses of mine i've tried to bind in a haiku form, some sort of an inspiration, i hope :P

here's an old one:

. Heavy emotions
. Bound and tied in a knot.
. A tear drops.

... and quite a recent one (from yesterday):

. A romantic setup,
. We almost became intimate.
. Rush hour in the subway.



ok, we have our first verses here :)

2012 wrapped up :D
