diamond egis is on a distinguished road
after the wave hit

roving air in light
of wet moon water and ice
whalers nerve edges

Diamond,
You have five verses here; what you should have is three. You're actually supposed to take the last line of the previous post and make that your first line. The next poster uses your last line, and so forth--the never-ending Haiku serpentines its way through peoples personal obsessions, one 5-7-5 Haiku at a time. Sort of like Sudoku for poets. That said:

Have at thee, sailor,
for I'm just a little fish.
Catch me if you can.

Pull you off the horse?

Clearly you can't ride.

Only darkness—pain—
a forgiving heart tends to bleed.
Yours is much the same.

Too steep? To ignore
this mountain's treacherous face,
concede to the fall.
