This is a bit of a forum game, but at the same time it has the capacity to result in a bit of poetry, so it goes here. I'm going to supply a line of poetry, and the following poster is to create a poem using the line I gave as their first. Along with their poem, they supply a line for the next person to write poetry on. No restrictions on the type of line or poetry; just keep the line open ended.

Here's the first line:

A mountain pokes out awkward in the mist

A mountain pokes out awkward in the mist
Why is it so awkward you ask?
Why simply because it is trying to fit in.

hope that counts as a poem was my first

The wolf howled its mournful cry
The sheep sniffed, "It's so beautiful!"

(I'm at a loss of words)

The tree shuddered in the wind

The wolf howled its mournful cry
It raised its muzzle to the deep dark sky
The howl flowed from his mouth
And was swept by the wind, headed south.

Eh, not that great! xD

The bird soared in the clouds

The bird soared in the clouds
And vanished with just a single puff.
I know not why I cried that day:
The summer sky seemed clear enough.

Next line:
Am I the keeper of my brother?

He sits sick in his bed,
And i hope, he is not dead...

The birds chirp, for it is morning
The wild dogs, howl their warning...

The wheat waves in the wind,
Another farm is reaped.
To the reaper we give our dues,
For we thank our lives.

I am very interested in this. Sadly I can't come up with something to complete it. But I will try.

The mournful winter releases life
From its duty for a season,
Some view it as death,
But I view it as with a reason.

haha.
NEXT
The lunar sky is quite a view,

The cat purrs softly
It's owner's hand stroking her fur
The cat slowly concurs
That sleep is best in warmth

Next..

The wind blew harshly in the cold

The wind blew harshly in the cold
The snow reflects the light
The snow owl swoops
It got its prey

Ok

The night was restless

The night was restless,
Deep and dark:
These are the signs
Of evil arts.

I know not what lurks in the deep
Or what foul beings seem to creep
In mud that seems mixed thick with blood
And bubbles shiny, soapy suds.

Next line:
He shot me, and my dreams were shattered glass...

He shot me, and my dreams were shattered glass...
Who know why he did this?
I cannot see if this pain will pass.
Ruining my perfect balance of bliss.

Probably ninja'd.XD

He shot me, and my dreams were shattered glass
What meaning they had has been lost, alas
What shall I be, I do not know
All I hope is that my good will show

Right off the top of my head.
aww crap almost ninjad... gonna leave that there cuz I liked it a bit.

Sitting on my little boat.
Rowing rowing across this moat
Casting my net, all souls today,
Will be captured in time, and lay at bay.

The night is bright, the moon is afire ...

Hoping against a ninja here.

The night is bright, the moon is afire
A beam of light shines down upon the shire
A shadow here, a light there
The mysterious night reaches out to all here

There you are, hopefully it's not terrible

As spring arrived
