The rules are simple:

:bulletgreen: Turn someone's else prompt into a haiku
:bulletgreen: Give a prompt at the end of your comment

For the sake of our game, haikus will be considered 3 line poems with syllable counts of 5-7-5.

A prompt can be anything: a song, a video, a picture, a .GIF, a joke, a weird word, something that happened to you today, or even a deviation. Thumbnails for deviations are encouraged. You can go for tradtional haikus or something as outlandish as possible. For that reason, I'll start us off with two prompts.

First prompt

a tree's blossoms fall during the night

Second prompt

zombie pirates at the rodeo

Nic's second prompt:

Close-up: bull's nose ring
clenched in shredded fist; this year,
champions ride dead.

Prompt: Death in a teacup

Headlines read: "Nightmare
At Disney: Teacups Spin Out
of Control, Eight Dead."

Ahahaha! I hadn't even considered that angle--awesome work!

Shoes off at the door,
stretch tired, cramped, aching toes.
"Hi honey, I'm home."

Prompt: paint-splotched jeans

Walls freshly painted,
cuddle tiredly in worn
jeans, our brand new home.

Prompt: marbles
TwilightPoetess Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Bare feet at midnight;
can't see the floor. Stray marbles
feel like bullet holes.

Prompt: reeling her in.

Cast my line far and
wide, pauper fishing for a
princess- got one hooked.

Caramel kisses
adorning her vanilla
skin- sundae delight.

All my clothes, ruined,
paint-splotched or grimy with goop:
children are messy.

Prompt: consequences
TwilightPoetess Jan 14, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Admired his specs;
got treated to a lecture
on judging others.

Prompt--fruity pebbles
