Ok, garysgirl asked for it...here's a chain of choka beginning, however!  You may participate via 5-7-5 haiku, 5-7-5 senryu, 5-7-5-7-7 tanka...as long as you follow the thought of the one before you; your last line[s] may lead onto another line of thought [as all good oriental poetry should!]  I hope you tag along, enjoy, and have fun!  Let's chain!  [You may participate as much as you wish!]

Sculpted white icing
Might well be a wedding cake
Lending promises

Ringing silver chimes
circle bands of crafted gold
Precious vows are told.

Our souls, man and wife
through struggles, joy, growth and change
are mated for life.

True love owns the soul
A team of two overcomes
Passion channeled grows

Chubby legs take steps
Longer growing into age
Running far from home

Even leaving home
Will not help children forget
Truth parents have taught
Regardless of the distance
Even across the ocean

Calls to Home ensue
To their Hearts they must be true
With help from mommy

A wedding promise
Iced in white, a promise lent,
Defaulted: Home calls.
Mother's help, oceans distant
Yet somehow close, til hearts mend.

With sincerest apologies.......heh-heh-heh....

My dog was a poet
And was all too unruly
He'd let himself out,
Go and "go" where he shouldn't
Until I found this Choka chain....

Distance, tearing hearts
that one could be two places
hurry home, hurry
dutiful minds never blink
loving hearts torn asunder

I wish now that I had posted a challenge with my long Choka, "Japan," which I put in as my first post a few days ago. Now I'll never know what kind of responses it would have drawn.

-ER


The ship slides slowly
over the green waves. Hurry!
Oh, please hurry home
to keep the old promises
and to mend the aching hearts!

sculpted white ice now
lends horror to the lost ones
where are safe harbors

Changing before my
eyes, purple clouds hovering
above the ocean
rise high, higher, into a
range of towering mountains.

Two bold headlands,
two rocks with clashing currents.
The safe, sweet harbor,
or the Sirens' yearning song?
The captain's twin temptations.

Resting in safety
among the peaceful harbors.

forever the seas holding him
