Renga in Four Parts

About the Story

This is interactive poetry: you can type particular words that occur in the text, or words that are implied. You can be entirely experiential and use word-association. Keep in mind that what you type is much a part of the poem as the verse.

Hovering, unobtrusive
watching over
the grey-sanded beach

A thoughtful and well-implemented poetry exercise, June 5, 2017
This game is based off of the japanese idea of Renga, which was itself the inspiration for Haiku.

In this game, you type keywords to form a poem. The game is quite adaptive, allowing you type all sorts of things.

This same adaptiveness makes it difficult to know how much in control you are. Typing Z over and over again will give you just fine poetry, but you can also directly influence it. This reminds me the most of Mirror and Queen.
