Haiku Prompt - Games

Let's play this week. Write a haiku or other type of poem based on games. Use your imagination and have fun.

For those who might be new to writing haiku, it traditionally follows a 5-7-5 syllable pattern in three lines. I'm all for breaking rules though. Give it a try and have fun. I'll put up a post on Wednesday so that we can share our poems and visit the other participants' blogs.

Here's a haiku I wrote a few years ago. I'll be writing a fresh one this week for the prompt.

Diagonal move to check
Long-standing bet lost

Don't forget to come back Wednesday (or later, I'm not set on deadlines!) to share your writing.

I just discovered your blog (via SL) and had to play along. I wrote my first Haiku Friday, and already onto another one. Here's mine:

A car and thimble
Land in jain and can't pass go.
Want to own Board Walk.

Sad, I know, but still an effort. ;)
