Susyâ€™s excellent Poem thread has proven to be very successful, and certainly very evocative. This new thread takes that wonderful thread and shares the composition between many. This SUPPLEMENTS the POEM thread â€“ they must co-exist and grow TOGETHER.
Here is how this one works:-
â€¢ One person writes one verse.
â€¢ The first verse determines the maximum verse size for all the following in that poem.
â€¢ The MAXIMUM verse size will, in any case, be 6 lines.
â€¢ There is no minimum verse size.
â€¢ Someone else has to write the following verse.
â€¢ On adding a verse, the person that adds it can declare it the last verse of the current poem and then give the title name for the next poem.
â€¢ Having given the title, that person can either start the new poem, or leave it to another to start.
To get this under way, the first shared poem, using a 4-line verse, is called
UNDER THE SKY
Under the sky is the air that I breathe
Sometimes there's lots. Sometimes there's not.
Under the sky is the one that I love
Sometimes we kiss, Always we miss.
