    Common Haiku (shared haiku's little sibling)

    I came across the idea for a common haiku after many people have posted at the same time. I was thinking how many different ways one haiku line can lead the direction of the haiku.

    Rules similar to shared haiku, except the first line of a haiku will be used for the next 10 posts. Posts 1-5 will have the same first line, and then the 6th, 11th, 16th, 21st, 26th...(you get the idea) poster will pick one of the final lines from above and we will use it for the next 5 haiku. I'm not sure if this will work, but here goes...

    Snowflakes Falling down.

    Now changing the first line in the thread every fifth post...don't forget, thanks

    thanks zanna, I've been thinking about it for a couple days before I posted it. I hope it works.

    Good idea, B-Mental.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.

    I hear him sing. Brought a rose.
    Finally, we kiss.

    Aww that was sweet lain!

    Watching out the window
    Unaware of their proud grins
    Her first day of school
    I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.

    Yikes! You people confused me. There is no "the" in "Watching out window". Haha, several posts before me got off. Silly smart people...

    Watching out window
    I shall sit and think and sigh
    For days long since past...

    There I can see him, staring.
    Then I saw tears flow.

    Erm, Poetess...the premise of a haiku is that its three lines have syllable counts of 5-7-5.

    There I can see him,
    Staring eyes, wild as whirlpools,
    Circus clowns passing.

    .
    Voices mysterious far and near,
    Sound of the wind and sound of the sea,
    Are calling and whispering in my ear,
    Whifflingpin! Why stayest thou here?

    Dark clouds roaming and twisting.

    There I can see him
    Without realizing my presence
    Staring out in the sea
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.
