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

Sl*t? I don't know what word you were trying to write, so I'll assume you meant "slot".

Old Macdonel had a slot
In which he hid his lot
But instead of beer, pipes and bowls
Old Macdoneld hid bones, hands, and skulls

Every night he would go to the city
And dance around, meet someone pretty
He would ask her to come to his place
Where he would then cut of her face

With each new sucessful kill
Over the years this slot did fill
Till one day the smell overflowed
Carried all the way down the road

Where sherrif Johnson could easily smell
The work of that farmer from hell
So instead of going to the city that night
Old Macdoneld was hung from a height

Hey, it had a happy ending. I guess.

It was the happiest time of his life
when he could walk
when his dreams were pure
then
now
he has to suffer
now the dreams are haunted
he can not walk
it was the worst time of his life

As the sun sets it is a picture perfect moment,
I grab my camera to preserve it forever.
But I was a moment too late,
And you couldn't see the brilliance.
I will try again on a later date.

lmfaooooooo. Sucks.

Petals falling from a wilting flower,
Only lasting for a hour.
We are weightless in the wind,
Carrying us to our end.
But one thing I'll always know,
I will go where I need to go.

Sucks.....

I like it! It is good XD

The star shines alone,
The light is blinding.
But beautiful.
Then I noticed the others around it.
All just as amazing,
Yet they shine on their own.
Together, but seperate.
Breathtaking.

This one sucks. I am trying my hand at non rhyming poems. freestyle-ish.

Dark mornings, Light Nights.

I liked it but OMG this ones gonna be hard to make....

Dark Mornings, Light Nights,
Alarm Lights, Night Lights,
They drive our emotions,
setting us into motion,
To strive to make our mornings bright,
and our nights have no light.
So that we may sleep.


Wow that made no friggin sense at all......XD

Opps forgot to post the next line....


I wake to the dawn,

I think ima do another one useing my line but its the same for the next perosn to use...

I wake to the dawn,
and see the white-tailed fawn,
Looking for the doe,
having no where to go.
I hear the howl of the dogs,
she trips over logs.
The dogs take her away,
but now she is with her mother to stay.

Sad D:

I wake to the dawn.
The early morning sun,
Is rising to greet me.
Fills me with energy,
As I wonder what I will see.

I step out into the sunlight,
Looking upon all the beautiful colors of nature.
The green on the leaves and the green ground.
A lavender flower petal falls without making a sound.

I walk with a purpose.
Throught my day.
The light, bouncy, air around me,
Begs for me to play.

So I skip through the yellow fields of wheat.
I climb up the old, faithful tree.
This day is such a wonderful treat.
It is amazing just to be.

When the day begins to darken,
I begin to feel tired.
So I walk back to my home,
And dream of the beauty of nature.
I am ready for a new dawn.

Eh, not my best. Oh well. :3 I enjoyed writing it.

Climbing up the ladder,
Oh such fun!
Climbing up challenges,
Oh such moan!
Stepping on the steps,
Oh such joy!
Stepping on feet,
Oh such nay!

Wishing for a serious first line

I glimpsed a burst of happiness
As my oppenent thought he had victory
I glanced at my cards
And wondered what he had
Whatever it was
Could it beat a full house?

The fish swam happily
with no cares in his fish world
until one day
he wasn't smart
he was caught
thats the power of thought

The confusing power of love
It bewitches, beguiles and betrays
It can build and it can destroy
Love is indeed a powerful thing
It boggles the human brain
It grips the hearts of two
And using its greatest power
Binds them together as one

Air so crisp and water so clear
Lacking all that I hold dear
No point to life without fault
The best things locked in a vault
As I stand on this lonely pier
Nothing to do for a lonely year
On my cheek a tear of salt
It is only the imperfect I exalt
It is onlt the perfect I fear
The monontony of the eternally austere
