Hey, I had an idea earlier of an old writing exercise I used to do in a creative writing class I took in high school, where essentially you would just pass around a page with a series of haikus, with each new haiku beginning with the last line of the previous one. I figured it might be a cool thing to try out here. It always seems to bring out some awesome concepts and ideas from people.

For those who aren't aware, the standard format of a haiku is measured in syllables, the first line having 5, the second, 7, and the third, 5 again.

I suppose I'll start
With a blade in the darkness
This shit is Ninja

So, next person who wants to join, your first line will be "This shit is Ninja". Who want's to try it out? :D

For sure, I really like the idea too. I think when I was writing it I erased and rewrote the second half of the last line, and just didn't recount the syllables before posting it. xD

Or do prayers go unnoticed?

Thank you, Phelon. ^_^ I'm so glad people are liking this. I thought it might be a nice exercise to get people writing more, even if it's just a little poem it helps to get those creative juices flowing. :D

Side note I'm not much of a writer but I am creative. I suck at art and I really like this outlet. I applaud this thread as well!
