Striving to be Better

The following haiku was written in September during the Haiku Challenge. I have once again taken the opportunity to rewrite it and see where it takes me.

The first rewrite uses the last line from the original haiku. The second rewrite is a modified version of the original haiku.


Words flooding from my
pen. Dreams scattered on paper
line, by line, by line.


line, by line, by line—
cries from the audience
curtains close


Ink flowing
creating dreams on paper—


Have you ever used the last line of a poem or haiku to create a new one?
