This is a game I played once.  The first person (me) writes the first verse of a haiku (5 syllables), then someone else writes the next line (7 syllables) but no more, finally someone else write the third line (5syllables) which also becomes the first line for the next haiku.  I have seen some fascinating poems come out of this as well as a few hysterical ones.

Now the first line:
                                  Soft, fragrant winds blow
"Not all who wander are lost" J.R.R.Tolkein
