    This kind of evolved out of the 6 word story thread, so here goes!:)

    A simple exercise, sort of like rhyming couplets, but not exactly (it doesn't have to be of equal length.) I'll give the first part of the 'couplet', and the next person has to complete it so that it both rhymes and makes sense to the first line. Then, post one of your own, so that the next person can continue. Easy!

    For example:

    A sunny day, a meadow, and a spreading tree...

    Today I walked through lonely city streets...

    I found a shiny penny, which really made my day:)




    Skies darken, wind howls, and an eerie sound fills the air...

    This kind of weather plays havoc with one's hair!

    I happened upon a merry Irish midget named Joctor Joe John.

    In the fish's eye sparkles the gem of the sea...

    Diamonds, pearls, sapphires... They're all the same to me.


    Joctor Joe John adds a skip to his step.

    The snow has gone for now, and winter's giving way to spring.

    Because most of my life so far has been just like a Broadway show!

    The candle flickered and died, leaving me sitting in the dark...

    The day breaks, and warm light fills the sky...
