SOME SWEET HAIKU ACTION!
I’m not a big fan of poetry, but there’s something exhilarating about writing a haiku. When you find the right word with the right number of syllables to complete a line, what a rush!
I was thinking about writing a haiku or two this morning, but was having a hard time narrowing in on a subject. I sat and stared at my computer for a while and then the room got brighter as I got a glorious idea…
It’s by far the best, and DORKIEST game that I’ve ever created!
Here’s how to play…
Google “random word generator” and a bevy of websites that randomly generate words (duh) with appear on your screen. I used http://www.randomlists.com/random-words and was not disappointed. Once you’ve found a website you like, set it up so that it generates three words at a time. Then you’re all set to play! The goal of Haiku Roulette is to take your three random words and seamlessly weave them into a beautiful haiku.
Get it? Good!
Let’s get this haiku party started!!!
I requested drugs!
Bump up that epidural!
And check for the head!
Fun, right?!?!?! Let’s do another!!!!
Hurry up, he yelled.
She fumbled with her sweater
and turned on the lamp.
Scandelous! We can’t stop now!
Stop being noisy
while I am teaching robots
how to shoot poison.
Say what? That was a weird one. What’s next?
Oh dear! Your poor hair!
I like your natural hue.
Green is not the best.
Hair haiku! Ha! I should really go to bed, but this is TOO FUN!
He presented her
a parcel wrapped in gold twine
and all the girls swooned.
Okay, seriously, I could do this all night. But I HAVE TO STOP NOW or I’ll be zombie tomorrow.
I hope you enjoyed my HAIKU ROULETTE.
