I propose a game of a different sort. A poetry game.

The poetry is called haikai no renga, and there is no objective. This is a form of Japanese poetry that dates back to the Middle Ages, when poets would spend hours drinking sake and composing verses on various subjects. A good example in translation can be found here:


Do not let the syllable count run past seventeen for three line verses, and fourteen for two line verses.

Spend at least two to three verses on a subject before shifting to another. When you do shift, do it as smoothly as possible.

Here's an example:

PQ: Even in death/her shrill voice follows--/winter winds.

Garnet: Tree laughing/over weathered headstone.

SR: Trickling, trickling/over and under the words/rain or tears?

Bgal: Plum blossoms shedding scent/submerged in a pool.

And so on, etc.

My goal is for us to come up with at least ten verses to start out. I will provide the first three lines, and the next poster will have to enter two, followed by another with three, etc, etc. Here we go:

Even in death
her shrill voice follows--
winter winds.

She dances, twirls, before stopping,
Her snowy dress falling 'round her as she lies.

A woman of power, valor,
But shattered and torn by the storm inside.
